Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS)
PROMYS offers a lively mathematical environment in which ambitious high school students explore the creative world of mathematics.  Through their intensive efforts to solve a large assortment of unusually challenging problems in Number Theory, the participants practice the art of mathematical discovery — numerical exploration, formulation and critique of conjectures, and techniques of proof and generalization. 

More experienced participants may also study algebra, geometry and symmetry, or combinatorics.  Problem sets are accompanied by daily lectures given by research mathematicians.  In addition, a highly competent staff of 18 college-aged counselors live in the dormitories and are always available to discuss mathematics with students.  Each participant will meet with professional mathematicians several times per week for problem-solving and open-ended explorations.  Special lectures by outside speakers offer a broad view of mathematics and its role in the sciences.

PROMYS is a residential program designed for 65 ambitious high school students in grades 9 through 12.  Admission decisions will be based on the following criteria: applicants' solutions to a set of challenging problems included with the application packet; teacher recommendations; high school transcripts; student essays explaining their interest in the program.

Cost: The approximate cost for instruction and room and board is $2,350.  Books may cost an additional $100.  Financial aid is available.  PROMYS is dedicated to the principle that no student will be unable to attend because of financial need.

PROMYS is directed by Professor Glenn Stevens.  Application materials can be obtained by writing to PROMYS, Department of Mathematics, Boston University, 111 Cummington Street, Boston, MA 02215, by email at , by visiting our website at, or by calling (617) 353-2563.  Applications will be accepted from February 1 until June 1, 2006. 
Program Cost: $2350
