Please contact us in the PROMYS office at if you have any questions or concerns. 


Counselor Application Process

The application asks about courses taken in university-level mathematics, any relevant work experience, mathematical interests, and why you want to be a counselor at PROMYS.

Applicants are asked to provide the following:

1. College transcript (this does not need to be an official transcript)
2. Curriculum vitae (CV) and
3. Two letters of recommendation from people familiar with your mathematical background and your work in university-level mathematics.

PROMYS is particularly interested in increasing diversity in mathematics and in science and technology opportunities more broadly. 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.
