Sign up HERE to be notified when the application becomes available for PROMYS 2020. 

PROMYS is a program for pre-college students; there are participants from across the United States and also international students.

To be eligible, students must, by the first day of the program, have completed at least 9th grade (or its equivalent) and be at least 14 years old. (Unfortunately, there is no flexibility on these requirements).  Students can attend during the summer between high school and college (or during a gap year). Students who already attend university are not eligible to apply to be students, though they may be eligible to apply for a counselor position.

Admissions decisions are based largely on the following criteria: an applicant’s solutions to a set of challenging problems, teacher recommendation, high school transcript, and responses regarding interest in the program.
