To Apply to the Ross Mathematics Program

Applications for 2017 are closed. Materials for the 2018 session will be posted in January 2018.

Application Deadline

The final deadline for 2018 Ross applications is April 1, 2018. Students are welcome to submit applications any time before then.  Starting March 1, the Admission Committee will begin accepting students on a rolling basis until all spaces have been filled.  Spaces will fill as applications arrive, so it is best to complete your application well before the end of March for adequate consideration.

Applying to Ross/Asia

Applications for Ross/USA and Ross/Asia are handled together: the same application may be used for either or both programs.

Home-Stay Opportunity
We offer an optional cultural exchange program prior to the start of Ross/Asia.  Participants from outside China live with host families for a week in Nanjing, to learn more about modern Chinese culture. (This involves no additional cost to the student.)

Note: This home-stay program has no affiliation with Ohio State University and is neither promoted nor endorsed by Ohio State. All arrangements are handled directly by Renascentia Hall International.

Financial Information

The fee to attend the 2017 Ross Program in Ohio is $4000. (For Ross/Asia the fee is 30,000 RMB.) The fees cover room, board, and instructional expenses.

The Ross Program endeavors to provide enough financial support to enable every accepted student to join us. If you have been accepted to the Ross Program and need financial assistance in order to attend, please ask your parent or guardian to contact us at We will reply with details on how to apply for scholarship support.


Are you a high school student in India?

If so, you are invited to apply for a Mehta Fellowship. The Ross Mathematics Program would like to thank Tara and Jasubhai Mehta for their generous sponsorship for mathematically talented Indian students to attend this year’s summer program. The Mehta Fellowships will cover the cost of tuition, room and board, and travel for two Indian applicants demonstrating financial need.
