The Maryam Mirzakhani Fund for The Next Generation
To commemorate esteemed mathematician and 2014 Fields Medalist Maryam Mirzakhani, the American Mathematical Society created The Maryam Mirzakhani Fund for The Next Generation in 2018.
This endowed fund supports AMS programs for doctoral and postdoctoral mathematicians. It will assist rising mathematicians each year at modest but impactful levels, with funding for travel grants, collaboration support, mentoring, and more. 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.
