Complimentary Nominee Memberships (Graduate Students and Faculty)

  • Nominee Members are individuals (graduate students and faculty) appointed by the department of mathematics of member institutions and are considered regular individual members of the Society who do not pay dues during the period they are nominated.


  • Institutions with a graduate program in the mathematical sciences can nominate all regularly enrolled graduate students for individual membership.
  • Institutions that do not have a graduate program in mathematical sciences are entitled to nominate up to four (4) individuals for membership. At least one (1) of these nominated members must be a regularly enrolled student. The remaining nominations may be faculty members. Additional nominated student memberships may be purchased for $51.

** The nomination process for graduate students occurs in early fall. Each institutional member will receive a letter in the mail about the opportunity to re-nominate, nominate, or drop student memberships. The form for this will be available online at that time, accessible through the email notification only (the link for the form is given in the letter).

Institutional Membership Dues

Annual dues of Institutional Members are set by action of the Council of the Board of Trustees of the American Mathematical Society and are based on the level of mathematical activity at the institution. The AMS membership year extends from January through December. Contact us to inquire about joining as an institution.
