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 the AMS Next Generation Fund along with the National Science Foundation, accepts applications for partial support for two types of AMS meetings:

AMS Fall 2024 Sectional Meetings

  • 2024 Fall Central Sectional Meeting: September 14-15, 2024, University of Texas, San Antonio, San Antonio, TX
  • 2024 Fall Southeastern Sectional Meeting: October 5-6, 2024, Georgia Southern University, Savannah, GA
  • 2024 Fall Eastern Sectional Meeting: October 19-20, 2024, University at Albany, Albany, NY
  • 2024 Fall Western Sectional Meeting: October 26-27, 2024, University of California, Riverside, Riverside, CA

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 U.S.-based institutions. Sectional travel grants will only be awarded once. 



The Joint Mathematics Meetings Travel Grants

January 8 - 11, 2025

This program supports selected doctoral students in mathematics at U.S.-based institutions who are in their last two years of study. Applications for partial travel support for graduate students attending the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Seattle Washington, January 8 - 11, 2025. JMM grants will only be awarded once. Any graduate student that has previously received a Travel Grant for the JMM will not be eligible to receive another JMM Travel Grant.

No applications are being accepted at this time.

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 the Programs Department. For questions, please contact the AMS Programs Staff.
