Students, Counselors and Professors of PROMYS 2014
- March, 2014: The PROMYS Breakout Fellowship Endowment is now fully funded! Terence Tao, Richard Taylor, and Jacob Lurie, recipients of the inaugural Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics very generously created the PROMYS Breakout Fellowship. The Breakout Fellowship is a full scholarship to PROMYS for a mathematically talented student who might not otherwise be able to attend. The PROMYS Foundation is happy to report that the PROMYS community has now fully matched the very generous donation of the Breakthrough mathematicians. Thanks to the generosity and vision of all the donors, the future of the Breakout Fellowships to PROMYS is assured: there will be a Breakout Fellow in every PROMYS cohort from this year on. We are very grateful to Richard Taylor, Terry Tao, Jacob Lurie, and the PROMYS alum community for their powerful achievement in making PROMYS accessible to talented young people far into the future.
- March, 2014: PROMYS is excited to announce the creation of the Tara and Jasubhai Mehta Fellowships in Mathematics which will fully fund the participation in PROMYS of two low-income students from India each year. The scholarships will cover tuition, room and board, books, and roundtrip airfare from India. We thank the sponsoring family for their generosity and look forward to welcoming the Tara and Jasubhai Mehta Fellows to PROMYS 2015!
- Summer 2014: The PROMYS Foundation was delighted to fund two full Trustee Scholarships in 2014. These were awarded to two talented returning students. Both young women were returning for their third summer at PROMYS.
