Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME)
Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME) is designed for undergraduates and recent graduates interested in the learning and teaching of secondary mathematics. BSME was conceived by the founders of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics (BSM), and the two programs share a common goal--to experience the mathematical and general culture of Hungary. BSME is specifically intended for students who are not only passionate about mathematics, but also the teaching of mathematics.
- Spend a semester in Budapest and learn from Hungarian teacher scholars.
- Study the Hungarian approach to learning and teaching, based on problem solving, mathematical creativity, and communication.
- Explore the city of Budapest, located on the Danube River, with its abundant cultural offerings and beautiful historical sights.
BSME will run an online program for the Spring 2021 session, in which students may take 1 to 5 courses. They will issue credits that are transferable to students’ home institutions. Given the strong demand for teachers to learn about online instruction in the current climate, the session will have a dual focus on the Hungarian pedagogy and online instruction. The application for the Spring 2021 session is due on January 11. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so students are encouraged to apply early. More information, including the online application, can be found at www.bsmeducation.com.
They also welcome recent graduates to apply, including current seniors and in-service teachers.

The Horizons Fellowship
The Horizons School of Technology supports 55 outstanding university students in their pursuit to become leaders in technology. Our tuition-free programs provide immersive software engineering and web/mobile development courses geared towards high-achieving college students. Students need not have a computer science background! Our curriculum, developed by ex-Salesforce and Optimizely engineers alongside PhD candidates in computer science, is designed to teach students how to build web, mobile, and desktop applications.
Horizons students have gone on to receive offers from firms such as Google, Slack, Yelp, Amazon, BCG, Visa, J.P. Morgan, and more.
Our Horizons Speaker Series brings in successful founders, investors, and technologists into the classroom. Students will hear from some of the industry's foremost experts. We have had some amazing speakers like the founders of Zenefits, Coinbase, Digital Ocean, Andela, X.ai, Shapeways, and more.
Past Horizonites have come from a variety of schools and backgrounds. Students have hailed from Harvard, Princeton, Yale, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, Northwestern, Brown, Michigan and more. We've welcomed National Math Olympiad winners, USA Computing Olympiad participants, renowned college entrepreneurs, students with perfect SAT/ACT scores, talented designers, photographers, and more as part of our previous cohort.
