PROMYS is a challenging summer program designed to encourage approximately 85 mathematically ambitious high school students and 25 undergraduate counselors from across the country and around the world to explore the creative world of mathematics.

PROMYS is designed for the mathematical development of the counselors as well as the students. Like everyone else at PROMYS, counselors immerse themselves in mathematics. Counselors earn a stipend plus free room and board (six-week stipend $4,000).

Counselors can be in any year of their undergraduate studies. The main requirements are a high level of mathematical achievement, potential for mathematical growth, and interest in working with talented high school students. PROMYS strongly encourages applications from prospective counselors who identify as female, African American, Hispanic or as being from other groups underrepresented in STEM. Our community is strengthened by diversity.

Counselors are invited to study mathematics independently by participating in advanced seminars and interacting individually with the faculty and visiting guest lecturers. In addition, the counselors are invited to organize mini-courses and seminars on themes of their own choosing in order to introduce students and fellow counselors to a broad variety of mathematical ideas.

PROMYS is an intense immersive experience, and the counselors help ensure a safe and supportive environment for all students.
