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 2023 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in Boston, Massachusetts. With generous support from an anonymous donor, awards were made to support travel, lodging, subsistence, and registration. We seek applications from faculty at all career stages who can identify benefits to their research, teaching, or departmental leadership from participating in JMM 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 JMM: support of up to \$1,050 for non-members, and up to \$2,100 for members.

As the largest annual gathering of mathematical people in the world, 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 full-time employed by US institutions typically offering a master’s, bachelor’s or associate’s 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 utilized instead.
  • Applicants may…
    • Utilize the grant to participate in JMM activities such as giving a talk in one of the sessions, serving as a panelist or workshop presenter, participating in the AMS Short Course (Jan 2 – 3) or the AMS Chairs and Leaders Workshop (Jan 3).
    • Provide an explanation for special circumstances surrounding their application.

Applications will be accepted on from September 1, 2022 through October 28, 2022.
