AMS Grants for PUI Faculty Travel to JMM

The AMS is pleased to offer grants for faculty from primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) to attend the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM). With generous support from an anonymous donor, awards are made to support travel, lodging, subsistence, and registration. We seek applications from faculty at all career stages who can identify how participating in the JMM will benefit their research, teaching, or departmental leadership and who would not be able to attend without this support. Individuals from groups historically underrepresented in mathematics are especially encourage to apply. The maximum reimbursement amount will depend on the applicant’s AMS membership status at the time of application: support of up to \$1,155 for non-members, and up to \$2,310 for members.

As the largest annual gathering of mathematical people in the world, the JMM provides its registrants a rich scientific program, opportunities to connect and network with others in the mathematical community, short courses, professional enhancement programs, workshops, career and job search resources, exhibits, and more.

Eligibility, Considerations, and Applications

  • Applicants must…
    • Be employed full-time by U.S. institutions typically offering a master’s, bachelor’s, or associate degree as their highest degree.
    • Be principally involved as a faculty member in such areas as mathematics, statistics, or mathematics education research.
  • Applicants should…
    • Provide evidence that their participation in JMM will benefit their research, teaching, or departmental leadership.
    • Show that support from this grant would be key to their traveling to the JMM site, i.e., that they do not have other substantial support that could be used instead.
  • Applicants may…
    • Use the grant to participate in JMM activities such as giving a talk in a session, serving as a panelist or workshop presenter, or attending the AMS Chairs and Leaders Workshop (January 2, 2024).
    • Provide an explanation for special circumstances surrounding their application.

Applications were accepted on from September 1 through October 17, 2023. No applications are being accepted at this time.
