Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

To ignite and nurture creative, ethical, scientific minds that advance the human condition.

Support from State of Illinois

Since it was founded in 1985, the Academy has been primarily funded through the Illinois General Assembly. Approximately 79% of funding for IMSA is provided annually by the State of Illinois. We are grateful for the ongoing support of the state, and welcome state and federal legislators on campus to experience IMSA.
