Centennial Fellowships provide one-year fellowships for research in mathematics.
The primary selection criterion for the Centennial Fellowship is the excellence of the candidate's research. A recipient of the fellowship shall have held his or her doctoral degree for at least three years and not more than twelve years at the inception of the award. Applications will be accepted from those currently holding a tenured, tenure track, post-doctoral, or comparable (at the discretion of the selection committee) position at an institution in North America. The amount of the fellowship varies each year.

About the Prize
A Research Fellowship Fund was established by the AMS in 1973. In 1988 the Fellowship was renamed to honor the AMS Centennial. The number of fellowships granted each year depends on the contributions received; the Society supplements contributions as needed to ensure that at least one fellowship is awarded each year. Make a contribution to the Centennial Fellowship Fund.
