We are always extremely grateful for contributions. It is thanks to our supporters that we are able to offer financial aid and scholarships and to run the program itself. It is central to the PROMYS mission that the program should be accessible to all students based on each student's mathematical readiness and motivation rather than on his or her family's ability to pay. It is the sponsors and donors, including generous alumni, who enable PROMYS to ask families to pay at most about two thirds of the $6,600 actual cost of a student’s participation.

Boston University is a non-profit organization. All contributions to PROMYS are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
