AMS Graduate Student Membership

Graduate Student membership is a free membership given by an institution to a full-time graduate student in the mathematical sciences.  No dues are owed by the student if the institution has paid for institutional membership.  Memberships run from January through December.  Individuals are re-nominated each year they are full-time graduate students.

Getting Started

A web account is required for checking membership status, changing addresses online, and accessing members-only benefits.

  1. Enter your name and school email address
  2. Create a password
  3. Once you have a login established, update your mailing address and mark your preference for delivery of membership related benefits

Benefits:

AMS supports graduate students with a variety of special services that foster research, encourage networking and build careers.

AMS Graduate Student Chapters

AMS Student Chapters is a a program that will generate interest in the mathematical sciences and encourage students in their mathematical pursuits.  The AMS provides $500 annually for Student Chapter mathematical activities. Start your chapter today!

Research

Mathematics Research Communities (MRC) nurtures early-career mathematicians - those who are close to completing their doctorates or have recently finished - and provides them with opportunities to build social and collaborative networks to inspire and sustain each other in their work.  The structured program engages and guides participants as they start their careers.  For each topic, the program includes a week-long summer conference, special session at the national meeting, discussion network, ongoing mentoring, and longitudinal study of early career mathematicians.

Fellowships & Grants

AMS Graduate Student Travel Grants aid graduate students traveling to the Joint Mathematics Meeting and Sectional Meetings. The Special Sessions planned for each meeting offer the latest in mathematical research and ideas, and provide numerous networking opportunities.  AMS- Simons Travel Grants are awarded to recent Ph.D. recipients and provide research related travel grants.  AMS also administers and supports other fellowship programs such as the Centennial Fellowship, and AMS-AAAS Media and Congressional Fellowships.

Career Services

AMS offers several programs to assist job seekers and employers:

  • The Employment Center is an annual job-interviewing program held at the Joint Mathematics Meetings.  Register by October. 
  • Job listings: featuring saved search email delivery and RSS feeds. 
  • Notices contain employment ads. (Note that Notices ads and web site ads are not the same. Check out both.) 
  • AMS Coversheet is a standardized data sheet used as an attachment to academic job applications; it can be printed, if needed, from your Mathjobs.org account.
  • MathJobs.Org is an automated job application system in mathematics.
  • Annual Survey gathers employment statistics. Several reports appear each year on our website and in Notices.  Annual Survey also reports names, institutions and thesis titles of new Ph.D. recipients in the mathematical sciences.
Help for Authors

As your research progresses and you prepare to publish scholarly work in mathematics, many questions arise. Check out these helpful AMS web resources:

Help for Teachers

As your teaching role increases and you begin to search for resources for your students,  look to the AMS for help. Our Public Awareness Office provides news, posters and events that make mathematics come alive for your students. Our Summer Program Guides helps gifted students find the right opportunities.

Looking for  student activities? Check out local math club web pages on our web site. Plan a Math Awareness Month event or organize a "Pi Day" Celebration on March 14th. 

Maintaining your membership throughout your career

Please contact the AMS once you know that your institution will no longer nominate you. You can choose the appropriate dues level at that time. Special offers are always available for former graduate students.
