National Championships Scholarships
mathleague.org is pleased to announce that we will be awarding scholarships at our US National Championships starting in 2021. The following terms apply to the 2021 US National Championships and will be updated each year prior to the National Championships:
We will be awarding a $1000 scholarship to the Countdown Round winner at each of the 2021 US National Championships (Elementary, Middle, and High School). At each US National Championship at least 16 students will be chosen for the Countdown Round. Participants will compete in a single elimination head-to-head contest using a standard seeded bracket; rules for the Countdown Round will be announced at the contest. The top 15 individuals at the entire contest will be assigned a seed number equal to their overall individual rank on the written competition rounds (Sprint, Target, and Number Sense if applicable) and will be placed into the bracket in a position that will require them to win no more than five matches to win the Countdown Round. The additional students will be chosen at the contest director's discretion and seeded into the bracket with numbers greater than 15. The contest director will make every effort to accurately determine the qualifiers and the winner for the Countdown Round, and the contest director's decisions in this regard are final and unappealable.
Scholarships will be administered by Math League Productions, a Florida nonprofit corporation, and funds will be held in a designated scholarship fund to be disbursed to the winners upon verification of their enrollment at an accredited post-secondary institution.
Any interest earned on scholarship funds while awaiting enrollment verification will accrue to Math League Productions. Scholarship winners are responsible for all taxes related to the scholarship.
