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:
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 – between January and December 2018.
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 deadline has passed, and no further applications will be accepted at this time.
March 17-18, 2018, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH
April 14-15, 2018, Portland State University, Portland, OR
April 14-15, 2018, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN
April 21-22, 2018, Northeastern University, Boston, MA
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 deadline has passed and no further applications are being accepted at this time.
September 29-30, 2018, University of Delaware, Newark, DE
October 20-21, 2018, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
October 27-28, 2018, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA
November 3-4, 2018, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR
Applications for any of these four sectional meetings will be accepted and considered as a group. The program accepts applications from current full time doctoral students at North American institutions. Travel grants will only be awarded once. Applications will be accepted on MathPrograms.org starting May 15, 2018. The deadline for submitting applications is July 23, 2018, 11:59pm Eastern Time.
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.
