Graduate Student Travel Grants
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 along with the National Science Foundation, accepts applications for partial support for two types of AMS meetings:
The Joint Mathematics Meetings Travel Grants
January 4 - 7, 2023
This program supports selected doctoral students in mathematics who are in their last two years of study. 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. Exception for JMM 2023-—those who received grant support for the virtual JMM in 2022 are eligible to apply for the JMM 2023 grant.
AMS Fall 2022 Sectional Meetings
Details about registration and programming for the AMS Online Sectionals are available here.
- September 17-18, 2022, University of Texas at El Paso, El Paso, TX
- October 1-2, 2022, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Amherst, MA
- October 15-16, 2022, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Chattanooga, TN
- October 22-23, 2022, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT
Applications for any one of these four sectional meetings will be accepted and considered as a group. This program accepts applications from current full time doctoral students at North American institutions. Sectional travel grants will only be awarded once.
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.
For travel support recipients, the AMS expects to reimburse actual, allowable expenses up to the stated amount of the travel award and after all requirements for reimbursement are met. If the proposed travel does not take place, no reimbursement can be made. Trip insurance cannot be reimbursed. Note that the AMS expects to reimburse tickets purchased two weeks in advance so if travel conditions are uncertain, consider waiting for that point. If opting to purchase a ticket even later than that, please include documentation of what the two-week advance purchase fare would have been, since the amount reimbursed cannot exceed that. If travel rules or procedures change, changes will be posted here and current awardees will be notified by email.
The travel grant program is administered by:
