Counselor Application

Counselor Application for 2020

Please click HERE to apply to be a counselor at PROMYS 2020. 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. Recommendation writers should be asked to upload their letters (in Word or PDF) via the link HERE.

You will be asked to upload your transcript and CV as PDFs. We are not able to process "Secure PDFs" or transcripts which are labelled with a lock symbol or the word "Secured" at the top. If your transcript is in this encrypted format, please send us a scan or screen shot as a PDF.

Please be aware that you are responsible for requesting the letters of recommendation yourself. We strongly encourage you to follow up with your recommendation writers to make sure the recommendations are submitted in a timely manner.  

We will begin reviewing applications in February and will accept applications through March 15. International applicants are particularly advised to apply early since visa arrangements can be lengthy.

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