The European Summer Program on Rationality (ESPR) is an immersive summer workshop for talented high school students all around the world (16-19 years old as of August 15, 2017) with exceptionally strong reasoning skills and a desire to understand our world.
The curriculum covers a variety of topics from mathematics to cognitive science, from social analysis to artificial intelligence, and extends the learning with guest speakers from a variety of cutting edge fields.
But the ultimate goal of our program is to show how rigorous, quantitative skills can be applied outside the classroom. How can we understand our behavior? How can we think more clearly to achieve our goals?
ESPR 2017 will be held in the second half of August in a college near London. Concrete start dates and duration will be announced after the Early Admissions phase (March 1), though it will start no later than the 23rd and be at least one week long.
The program's tuition as well as meals and lodging are free for all admitted students. Need-based travel scholarships are available.
This program is the successor of the acclaimed EuroSPARC program, and it is sponsored by the Center For Applied Rationality (CFAR).
Applications for ESPR are now open! Early applications are due on 11:59PM PST, March 1, 2017. To apply, click here
