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.
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, accepts applications for partial support for two types of AMS meetings:
January 6 - 9, 2021, Washington, DC
Applications are accepted during the open period from August - September. This program supports only selected doctoral students in mathematics who are in their last year of study.
That is, applicants must not have received their doctoral degrees before the travel takes place, but must expect to receive it within twelve months of the JMM.
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. The application period begins in late August; check back here at that time for updates about application information.
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. Travel grants will only be awarded once. The application period is now closed.
These meetings will be held virtually and travel support is not offered; check the AMS Sectional Meeting web page for further details.
Applications are only accepted online through MathPrograms.org. An account (free for applicants) must be created in order to apply.
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.
The travel grant program is administered by:
