AMS Epsilon Fund Grants for Young Scholars Programs

The AMS Epsilon Fund awards grants of up to US$15,000 in support of summer mathematics programs for mathematically talented high school students. Support will be offered to existing programs that are most successful in nourishing mathematically talented youth. Programs should have been in existence for at least one year, and preferably more. Successful programs tend to have the following characteristics: run over a period of multiple weeks in the summer, bring in at least 20 high school students with mathematical talent, and generally be directed by mathematicians. Programs can focus on problem solving or mathematical research in any area of mathematics.

Applications are accepted from program directors only; not from students or parents. The deadline is December 15 for awards the following summer. Award announcements are made each February. Approximately 5 - 7 awards are made per year. Funding is for one year and it is expected that half of the funds will be used for student scholarships, and half for program expenses.

Application information is available in pdf format. Contact the AMS Professional Services Department with any questions, or to have your program added to the mailing list, at 800-321-4267, ext. 4105, or prof-serv@ams.org.
