3) The mathematical material that students tackle at PROMYS is very challenging, and participants are expected to enjoy working intensively in mathematics; but students do not need to have taken any advanced or accelerated mathematics courses to thrive at PROMYS.
4) PROMYS is a co-educational program. Male and female students are supervised and supported by same gender counselors and sleep in gender-separated areas of Boston University campus housing.
5) Many domestic students at PROMYS receive full or partial need-based financial aid. Mehta Fellows receive full scholarships.
6) Although the majority of PROMYS students and counselors are from the United States, there are always a number of international students and counselors as well. Over the past 30 years, there have been students and counselors from at least 48 different countries – including India.
7) Mehta Fellows will be provided with bed linens and towels during the program.
8) Laptops are not needed at PROMYS. Students who wish to do so may use Boston University desktop computers at no charge.
9) PROMYS students eat their meals in a cafeteria at Boston University. Vegetarian options are always available.
