Quick Facts for Teachers
“No single program or class has influenced the way I teach more than PROMYS... I would be a different teacher today if I had not attended PROMYS.” Jamil Siddiqui, PfT 1999–2001
PROMYS for Teachers (PfT) engages secondary school teachers in an intensive experience of mathematical problem solving with the goal of promoting a culture of exploration in mathematics classrooms. The immersive nature of the program provides a supportive environment where teachers can spend time as learners. PfT consists of a six-week summer component at Boston University and five academic-year workshops.
We anticipate that PROMYS for Teachers will run in person in 2022.
PROMYS for Teachers 2022: July 4 – August 12, 2022

Tuition, Stipend & Credits
PROMYS for Teachers is FREE to participants. U.S.-based teachers will receive a $1,200 stipend and earn 8 college credits which may be used toward a degree program.
PROMYS for Teachers is open to secondary teachers from the U.S. and abroad – we aim to admit all qualified applicants. As a non-residential program, teachers are responsible for their own housing during the six-week program. Pre-service and more experienced teachers are welcome to apply.
PROMYS is particularly interested in increasing diversity in mathematics and in science and technology opportunities more broadly. PROMYS strongly encourages teachers to apply who are female, Black, Latino/a or from other groups underrepresented in STEM, and those who work with such students.
