Students compete for scholarships in 40th Annual High School Mathematics Competition

As a descriptive word, "academics" doesn't do much in the way of expressing what learning at Trine is really like. Here, knowledge is lived. Our students and faculty put their knowledge to work in ways that solve real problems facing real communities throughout Indiana, across the region, and around the world. At Trine you'll see that learning is never some static thing. It's what challenges and inspires us all at once.

Competition is set for Wednesday, Jan. 29

ANGOLA, Ind. – High school students are invited to participate in Trine University's 40th Annual High School Mathematics Competition scheduled for Jan. 29. Each year, Trine awards renewable scholarships to winning students and stipends to teachers who coach winning teams.
