MBK Fellow Spotlight: Mark Bellamy, Jr., Monticello High School

SAAMS is a rigorous academic enrichment program in math, actuarial science, and computer science. Applicants for the program are selected through a competitive application and interview process and those selected to attend receive a stipend. The purpose of the program is to foster an interest in math, actuarial science, and computer science with the hope of increasing the number of students who enter those STEM fields.
All applicants to this program must write an essay, provide a transcript, and obtain two letters of recommendation. Mark will participate in the SAAMS summer program before beginning the program virtually this fall.
