Want to join us at BEAM?

Most students are recommended to BEAM by their math teacher, but we also welcome contact from parents and students who meet the following criteria. 

BEAM 6 invites applications from students who:

  • Are currently in 6th grade
  • Live in New York City or Los Angeles
  • Demonstrate financial eligibility for BEAM's programs*

BEAM's application window is from January-February of each year.  At this time, after our deadline, we are still able to accept applications for BEAM 6, but they will be applying for a seat on our wait-list. This is not the worst case scenario as many of our BEAM alumni have been accepted off the wait-list.

Information about Summer 2019 will be available beginning in December 2018

*BEAM is designed to support students who are underrepresented in STEM careers. Our primary admissions criteria are mathematical (are you ready for BEAM’s programs?) with priority given to those who come from lower-income families or who wouldn’t otherwise have access to similar programs.

Historically, the median family income for students attending BEAM is $27,000 per year. BEAM does consider extenuating circumstances when making eligibility decisions. Please include this information in the financial eligibility form. 

BEAM is committed to serving all eligible students regardless of immigration status. BEAM will not ask questions about the immigration status of either a student or their family in the admissions process. If you choose to provide information about immigration status, BEAM will keep all such information private and only use it to recommend appropriate next steps for a student and their family.
