The AMS offers the following DC-based fellowship opportunities for early career mathematicians and students:
EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSION
The AMS recognizes the breadth of people, thought, and experiences that contribute to mathematics research, education, and all related professions. We welcome everyone interested in mathematics as we work to build a community that is diverse respectful, accessible, inclusive and equitable. We are committed to ensuring equitable access to mathematics opportunities and resources for people regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran status, immigration status, or any other social or physical component of their identity.
TEACHING AND LEARNING MATHEMATICS
The AMS provides educational guidance, resources, and activities that support high quality, equitable, and meaningful teaching of mathematics. Students and pedagogues have access to such resources as:
PRESENT YOUR RESEARCH AND GATHER WITH COLLEAGUES
The AMS encourages and supports graduate students and early career mathematicians with a variety of special services that foster research, promote networking, and build careers.
AMS MEETINGS AND CONFERENCES
Attend sectional, national, and international mathematical meetings sponsored by the AMS. Present your research, attend sessions, network with colleagues, and enjoy social gatherings. Competitive travel grant programs are available to graduate students well in advance of these meetings.
MATHEMATICS RESEARCH COMMUNITIES
The AMS's Mathematical Research Communities program is a professional development program offering early career mathematicians a rich array of opportunities to develop collaboration skills, build a network focused in an active research domain, and receive mentoring from leaders in that area.
The AMS raises charitable donations for programs to benefit you as a graduate student, such as AMS Graduate Student Travel Grants, JMM Child Care Grants, and AMS Graduate Student Chapters.
If you benefit from these or other AMS programs, we encourage you to write our donors a note, thanking them for their generosity. Your notes show the impact the donors make and often inspires them to continue giving!
Send your note by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by postal mail to AMS Development, 201 Charles Street, Providence, RI 02904. We will be sure to share your message!
EXPLORE LEADING PUBLICATIONS IN MATHEMATICS
AMS publications will be indispensable throughout your mathematical career.
- Our member journals, Notices and Bulletin, keep you up to date on the latest in mathematics.
- Our peer-reviewed research journals are among the most respected in the field and are ideal places to publish your work.
- Take advantage of your book discounts, free standard shipping, and eBook offers in the AMS Bookstore.
MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS / MATHSCINET®
Mathematical Reviews (MR) serves the mathematical community by reviewing, indexing, and classifying literature based on the Mathematics Subject Classification.
MathSciNet provides full search access to the MR database, with tools and features specifically designed to help discover and cite material within the mathematical sciences.
AMS OPEN MATH NOTES
Open Math Notes is a repository of freely downloadable mathematical works hosted by the American Mathematical Society as a service to researchers, faculty and students. Open Math Notes includes:
- Draft works including course notes, textbooks, and research expositions. These have not been published elsewhere and are subject to revision.
- Items previously published in the Journal of Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics, a refereed journal.
ADVOCATING FOR MATHEMATICS
The Office of Government Relations represents the AMS in policy discussions relevant to the mathematical sciences at the federal level, advocating for congressional support of research funding, and other policies that affect our profession. We work with federal agencies, legislative staffs, professional societies, and Washington-centered policy groups to advance AMS policy priorities. We support and advise the AMS, its members, and the larger mathematics community about federal actions and opportunities.
