Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial Aid

PROMYS offers full and partial need-based financial aid and is dedicated to the principle that no one should be unable to attend for financial reasons.

To be considered for financial assistance, please have a parent or guardian complete the financial aid form found in the application packet and mail it along with a copy of the 2013 federal income tax forms to:

Department of Mathematics
Boston University
111 Cummington Mall, Room 142
Boston, Massachusetts 02215

PROMYS regrets that need-based financial aid is not available to international students unless they are U.S. citizens living abroad. However, European students are eligible for merit scholarships funded by the Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI).

If you feel that, even with a full scholarship from PROMYS, financial need may keep you from attending, we encourage you to apply to the Mathematics Summer Stipends (MASST) program. Supported by NSF funds, MASST can provide a stipend of up to $3,000 to enable a strong student from an economically disadvantaged background to take advantage of a full scholarship from a mathematics summer program such as PROMYS. We are, of course, happy to nominate suitable students.  

AMS Scholarships

With support from the American Mathematical Society (AMS) Epsilon Fund, PROMYS is pleased to offer a Ky and Yu-Fen Fan Scholarship to a talented high school student in this summer's program.

Scholarships for Students from Massachusetts

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, merit scholarships of up to $500 will be granted to all PROMYS students who are residents of Massachusetts.  

It is our hope that the merit scholarships awarded to each Massachusetts student will be for $500, as they have been for each of the past few years. 

HMMT/HMNT Scholarships

PROMYS will award two $250 scholarships (to one male and one female first-year PROMYS student) among winners of HMMT or HMNT who qualify for the program.

Tara and Jasubhai Mehta Fellowships in Mathematics

Thanks to the generosity of the sponsoring family, the Tara and Jasubhai Mehta Fellowships in Mathematics will fully fund the participation in PROMYS of two low-income students a year from India.  The scholarships will cover tuition, room and board, and roundtrip airfare from India.
