Given the conditions for securing the health and safety of program participants during the upcoming scheduled summer program continue to be uncertain, we regret to announce that COSMOS 2020 is cancelled. COSMOS will be back next year, and we encourage you to return to this site in December 2020 for information about the opportunities offered by COSMOS 2021.


COSMOS strives to motivate the most creative minds of the new generation of prospective scientists, engineers, and mathematicians who will become the future leaders for California, our nation, and the world. The program aims to create a community of students who participate in and contribute to an intensive academic experience delivered by distinguished educators and scholars.
