“PROMYS is more than just a summer program - It is an experience that will change your life. The path of discovery that one follows as a student of PROMYS is unique and will change your perception of mathematics.
The problem sets showed me that mathematics demands one to make bold conjectures, while also giving substantial emphasis on rigor and proofs. The opportunities to explore mathematics at PROMYS are endless.
I loved the diverse community I was part of at PROMYS. The chance to interact with students and counselors from around the world is truly enjoyable. I am extremely grateful to the sponsors of the Mehta Fellowships for giving me this wonderful experience.”
