Establish a Prize, Award, or Fellowship
Establishing a prize, award or fellowship is a wonderful way to honor a colleague, mentor, program or your family name. AMS prizes advance research and scholarship while recognizing individuals and programs for their contributions to the mathematical sciences and to the mathematics community.
The AMS strives to offer a range of prizes across different fields of mathematics research and education. The AMS Development Committee and Development staff will work with you to help you achieve your philanthropic goals. Please contact Director of Development Doug Allen at 401.455.4126 or by email for more information.
