The transformer that provides electricity to the AMS building in Providence went down on Sunday, April 22. The restoration of our email, website, AMS Bookstore and other systems is almost complete. We are currently running on a generator but overnight a new transformer should be hooked up and (fingers crossed) we should be fine by 8:00 (EDT) Wednesday morning. This issue has affected selected phones, which should be repaired by the end of today. No email was lost, although the accumulated messages are only just now being delivered so you should expect some delay.
Thanks for your patience.
Explore mathematics in other places, learn more about educational issues, find a research fellowship, help students, increase diversity in the mathematical sciences—these are just a few of the important goals that AMS programs can help you achieve.
We are now accepting applications for AMS Graduate Student Chapters — a program that will generate interest in the mathematical sciences and encourage students in their mathematical pursuits.
The AMS invites mathematicians just beginning their research careers—those who are close to finishing their doctorates or have recently finished— to become part of Mathematics Research Communities, a new program to build social and collaborative networks to inspire and sustain each other in their work. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to participate. The structured program engages and guides all participants as they start their careers. Research topics vary each year.
Help mathematical communities in developing countries by donating to the Book Donation Program. Or use that page to see information about obtaining a donated set of books. Or explore other Volunteer Opportunities.
Looking for financial support? Find a Travel Grant or a Fellowship administered by the AMS. The AMS does not accept applications for undergraduate scholarships.
Interested in learning more about Educational Initiatives such as research at the high school and undergraduate levels? The AMS can help. The AMS also has several programs specifically for students, such as the Arnold Ross Lectures and the popular Who Wants to Be a Mathematician game.
Learn more about efforts to Increase Diversity in the mathematical sciences.
The AMS also offers application hosting for small programs through MathPrograms.org, a service brought to you by the same team as MathJobs.org.
Lastly, let the AMS help you find Other Sources of Funding.
In addition to these programs, the AMS has long-standing services that provide Employment Assistance, increase Public Awareness, collect Data on the profession, and Help Department Leaders.
