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:

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. Applications for partial travel support for graduate students attending the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Massachusetts, MA January 4-7, 2023. The awards, not to exceed US$1,300. 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. 

Application period: September 1 - October 14, 2022.

 

 

AMS Spring 2023 Sectional Meetings 

Details about registration and programming for the AMS Sectionals are available here. 
  • March 18-19, 2023, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA
  • April 1-2, 2023, meeting virtually, EDT
  • April 15-16, 2023, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH
  • May 6-7, 2023, California State University, Fresno, Fresno, 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 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:
