PROMYS 2020 Bridge Program Financial Aid

Financial Aid for PROMYS 2020 Online Bridge Program

At PROMYS, we would like every accepted student to attend, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. We are happy to offer the 2020 Bridge Program FREE for students whose families make under $60,000 per year. Financial aid may also include the cost of a tablet and stylus and access to wifi.

We give financial aid based on demonstrated need. Awards can cover up to the full program cost. To be considered for financial aid, please submit a financial aid form.

The chart below for 2020 gives an approximation of the expected contribution from each family based on total income. Please be aware that financial aid awards vary depending on each family’s particular situation and are based on demonstrated financial need. Therefore, this is only meant to give an estimate of the amount you would be asked to pay in 2020. 

Family's Total Annual Income Minimum Cost in 2020 Maximum Cost in 2020
$0-$60,000 $0 $0
$60,001 - $80,000 $0 $1,000
$80,001 - $100,000 $0 $1,700
$100,001 + $100 $1,700

Funding may also be available from such sources as Mu Alpha Theta, Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, or the Spirit of Ramanujan Global STEM Talent Search.

International Students

Financial aid for international students is considered on a case-by-case basis. If you are an international student who requires financial aid to attend PROMYS, we encourage you to submit a financial aid form.

Cost for In-Person PROMYS Program: Please note that the costs and financial aid figures above refer to the online Bridge Program for 2020 rather than the regular in-person PROMYS program at Boston University. Before Boston University cancelled all in-person summer programs for 2020, families who could afford to do so would have been asked to contribute $5,150 towards the actual per-student cost to PROMYS (of over $7,000). Financial aid for PROMYS 2021 will remain generous with participation remaining free for families making $60,000 a year or less.
