  • Boston University's Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists: Deadline April 1, 2017 - I would like to ask for your help in reaching out to high school students who might benefit from the kind of experience PROMYS provides: a challenging and supportive mathematical environment in which close to a hundred talented young people explore the creative world of mathematics. Successful applicants do not need to have taken any advanced courses. They do need to show unusual readiness for thinking deeply about mathematics. The application, which contains a collection of ten challenging problems can be found here. The application problems are not designed to be quick or easy for even the most talented student, so we advise all applicants to take time to think over the problems and to explain their reasoning.
