Meetings are an important part of any young mathematical scientist's professional development. Listening to talks, meeting active researchers, connecting with old friends, learning about professional issues and resources, and making new professional connections are building blocks of the early career.
The AMS, with support from a private gift, accepts applications for partial support for two types of AMS meetings:
January 16 - 19, 2019, Baltimore, Maryland
Applications are accepted during the open period from August - September. This program supports only selected doctoral students in mathematics who are in their last year of study.
That is, applicants must not have received their doctoral degrees before the travel takes place, but must expect to receive it within twelve months of the JMM.
Grants will only be awarded once. Any student that has previously received a Travel Grant for the JMM will not be eligible to receive another JMM Travel Grant. The application is now available on MathPrograms.org. The deadline is September 25 at 11:59 pm EST.
Applications for any one of these three sectional meetings will be accepted and considered as a group. This program accepts applications from current full time doctoral students at North American institutions. Travel grants will only be awarded once. Applications are being accepted here on MathPrograms.org starting September 10, 2018. The deadline is November 18, 2018, 11:59pm EST.
Applications for any of these four sectional meetings will be accepted and considered as a group. The program accepts applications from current full time doctoral students at North American institutions. Travel grants will only be awarded once. The deadline has passed and no further applications are being accepted at this time.
Applications are only accepted online through MathPrograms.org. An account (free for applicants) must be created in order to apply.
All information about the Joint Mathematics Meetings and AMS Sectional Meetings can be found in the Meetings section of the AMS website. Please take note of deadlines for papers; travel grant applicants or awardees are responsible for making their own travel and meeting arrangements.
The travel grant program is administered by:
