About the Prize
A Research Fellowship Fund was established by the AMS in 1973. In 1988 the Fellowship was renamed to honor the AMS Centennial. The number of fellowships granted each year depends on the contributions received; the Society supplements contributions as needed to ensure that at least one fellowship is awarded each year.  Make a contribution to the Centennial Fellowship Fund.
