I was really happy to receive a $1500 scholarship, but I still need to raise $2700 to cover the costs of the program. Because I really did not expect to be accepted, my family and I did not plan to budget and save for this. To help my parents out, I am trying to raise as much of this money as possible. If you would like to help me realize my dream of going to PROMYS this summer, I would be so grateful for your support. Thanks for reading my story!
Information about PROMYS
Here is an excerpt about the PROMYS program from the PROMYS site :
PROMYS is a challenging program designed to encourage ambitious high school students to explore the creative world of mathematics. Each summer, approximately 80 high school students from around the country gather on the campus of Boston University for six weeks of rigorous mathematical activity. Through their intensive efforts to solve an assortment of unusually challenging problems in Number Theory, participants will practice the art of mathematical discovery. The problem sets encourage students to design their own numerical experiments and to employ their own powers of analysis to discover mathematical patterns, formulate and test conjectures, and justify their ideas by devising their own mathematical proofs.
