AMATYC Student Math League Exam
The AMATYC Student Math League Exam is held twice per academic year. It consists of
a twenty question exam with a mathematical requirement no greater than Pre-Calculus.
The problems are designed to be challenging and students are rewarded at the end of
the academic year for high scores on this exam. To learn more about the AMATYC Student
Math League Exam, click here. Anyone can take the exam. All you need to do on the day of the test is show up to
the designated location, bring a pencil and an approved graphing calculator with you
(no QWERTY capabilities, no TI-NSpire, etc.), and follow the exam rules.

Scholarships are funds made available by sources generally other than the government, such as private businesses, organizations, clubs, colleges, etc., for students to help with the costs of their education. Generally students must compete for scholarships. Awards have many different criteria; they may or may not depend on financial need, may be aimed toward a specific major or type of student, may have a high GPA requirement or may not. Below is a link to LPC's Financial Aid site, which details how to look for and apply for scholarships.
