As a way to commemorate esteemed mathematician and 2014 Fields Medalist Maryam Mirzakhani, the American Mathematical Society has created The Maryam Mirzakhani Fund for The Next Generation.
This endowed fund will support AMS programs for doctoral and postdoctoral mathematicians. In its inital years, the fund's spendable interest income will support existing successful AMS programs for early career mathematicians: AMS Graduate Student Travel Grants, Mathematics Research Communities, Graduate Student Chapters, the JMM Employment Center, and JMM Child Care Grants. As the endowment grows over time, other programs will be supported as needs arise. A donation to the Maryam Mirzakhani Fund honors her groundbreaking contributions, and helps rising mathematicians as they establish themselves in the profession.
The Maryam Mirzakhani Fund for The Next Generation supports the goals and activities of The Next Generation Fund: to offer modest but impactful support to as many rising scholars each year as possible.
