About MTRP

The students and research scholars of Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata as a part of its annual fest organize the Mathematics Talent Reward Programme (MTRP) in January every year, with the vision of increasing the interest and creating awareness about the subject among school students. One of the major aims of this programme is to identify and reward talent at a young age. This programme also offers the students an opportunity to assess themselves respective to their contemporaries throughout the state, and brings an opportunity for them to interact with contemporary mathematicians and scientists.

The Mathematics Talent Reward Programme (MTRP) is the perfect platform for all students who are passionate for Mathematics. The pivotal purpose of this programme is to take mathematics beyond standard textbooks by inspiring innovative and non-routine mathematical thinking among students and improving their conceptual understanding. In the past, MTRP has attracted the best minds from all over West Bengal and beyond, who have faced the best mathematical challenges and emerged with flying colours.
