Counselor Application

PROMYS 2021 will run as an online program. Counselor dates: July 2 - August 14, 2021. 

We will begin reviewing applications on February 15 and make offers on a rolling basis. We will accept applications through March 30.

The application is now live. Applicants are asked to submit the following:

1) Application Form: HERE 

2) College transcript (to be uploaded to the application). This does not need to be an official transcript.

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.)

3. Curriculum vitae (CV) (to be uploaded to the application)

4 and 5: Letters of Recommendation: Please ask two individuals who are familiar with your work in college-level mathematics to upload letters of recommendation (in Word or PDF) via the Counselor Recommendation Form HERE

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 were submitted in a timely manner.

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 other groups underrepresented in STEM. Our community is strengthened by diversity.

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