KFUPM mathematics olympiad is a national mathematics olympiad for secondary school students in Saudi-Arabia organized by King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM). The competition started in 2006 in one center in Eastern Province then gradually the number of centers increased in the following years to include seven centers over the kingdom (Dhahran, Riyadh, Jeddah, Al-Qasim, Abha, Madina, Al-Hasa).

In its fifth and sixth edition, the competition managed to involve first and second secondary school students in addition to the third secondary grade students and introduced a center for female students in the Eastern Province. In 2015, it launched two new female centers in Riyadh and Jeddah.[1]
