What is MCTP?

MCTP is a program at Scottsdale Community College sponsored by the National Science Foundation, where you will be paid up to $1,000 to learn in a unique atmosphere, different from your traditional college classes. For three weeks, from May 15, 2017 to June 2, 2017, 8:30am - 12:30pm, innovative faculty leaders in their fields will have the opportunity to share with you their areas of research and work; you will collaborate with the best math and science students, in a hands on, and possibly career and life changing way.

Did I mention you will be paid?

In addition, you will also have the opportunity to earn one (1) MAT credit. You will have the chance to meet and work with ASU students and faculty throughout the upcoming school year. Students may also have the opportunity for a second summer program in 2016. Students should expect to work directly with an instructor during the morning and should also expect to spend time on projects in the afternoon.


We are looking for students who will potentially major in mathematics sciences or engineering, and may considering transferring to ASU after their time at the community college.

  • Completion of at least Calculus 1 [grade B or better]
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Current community college student, preferably full time
  • Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents,
    with social security number and eligible to work in the US
