PROMYS is a six-week summer program at Boston University designed to encourage strongly motivated high school students to explore in depth the creative world of mathematics in a supportive community of peers, counselors, research mathematicians, and visiting scientists. Professor Glenn Stevens, the Director of PROMYS, founded the program in 1989 together with other members of the current faculty.
The Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI) and PROMYS are offering new advanced seminars for returning PROMYS students. Returning students also engage in original research under the mentorship of professional mathematicians.
PROMYS for Teachers is a collaboration of Boston University's Department of Mathematics with the Education Development Center in Waltham, Massachusetts. Together we are working to promote what we call a "culture of exploration" in secondary school mathematics classrooms.
PROMYS is delighted to announce that the CMI-PROMYS International Alliance will again be fully funding the PROMYS participation of ten European students. Formed in 2013, the CMI-PROMYS International Alliance is an expansion of the long standing PROMYS partnership with the Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI). The CMI-PROMYS Scholars will be selected from scholarship applicants from all over Europe. Scholarship finalists will be interviewed by PROMYS alumni in Europe. The CMI-PROMYS Scholars will follow up their six weeks at PROMYS with participation in the one-week residential Oxford Masterclasses in Geometry, at Oxford University, England.
