Institutional Nominee membership is a free membership given by a participating institution to a full-time graduate student or faculty in the mathematical sciences. No dues are owed by the student if the institution has paid for institutional membership. Memberships run from January through December. Individuals are re-nominated each year they are full-time graduate students or faculty.**
A web account is required for checking membership status, changing addresses online, and accessing members-only benefits.
The nomination process for nominee members occurs in early fall. Each institutional member will receive a letter in the mail about the opportunity to re-nominate, nominate, or drop nominee 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.)
AMS Graduate Student Chapters is a program that will generate interest in the mathematical sciences and encourage students in their mathematical pursuits. The AMS provides $350 annually for Student Chapter mathematical activities. Start your chapter today!
Communicate with fellow Graduate Student Members and learn about issues concerning those new to the profession.
Mathematics Research Communities (MRC) nurtures early-career mathematicians - those who are close to completing their doctorates or have recently finished - and provides them with opportunities to build social and collaborative networks to inspire and sustain each other in their work. The structured program engages and guides participants as they start their careers. For each topic, the program includes a week-long summer conference, special session at the national meeting, discussion network, ongoing mentoring, and longitudinal study of early career mathematicians.
AMS Graduate Student Travel Grants aid graduate students traveling to the Joint Mathematics Meeting and Sectional Meetings. The Special Sessions planned for each meeting offer the latest in mathematical research and ideas, and provide numerous networking opportunities. AMS- Simons Travel Grants are awarded to recent Ph.D. recipients and provide research related travel grants. AMS also administers and supports other fellowship programs such as the Centennial Fellowship, the AMS-AAAS Media Fellowship and the AMS Congressional Fellowship.
AMS offers several programs to assist job seekers and employers:
As your research progresses and you prepare to publish scholarly work in mathematics, many questions arise. Check out these helpful AMS web resources:
As your teaching role increases and you begin to search for resources for your students, look to the AMS for help. Our Public Awareness Office provides news, posters and events that make mathematics come alive for your students. Our Summer Program Guides helps gifted students find the right opportunities.
Please contact the AMS once you know that your institution will no longer nominate you. You can choose the appropriate dues level at that time. Special offers are always available for former graduate students.
