*** this program has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The AMS is administering a program (contingent on funding by the National Science Foundation (NSF)) to provide partial travel support for U.S. mathematicians (with no external research support) attending the 2017 Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA 2017) July 24-28, 2017, in Montreal, Canada.

Early career mathematicians within six years of their doctorate (that is, those who hold a doctorate granted between November 1, 2010, and October 31, 2016) are invited to apply. Please note women, and members of U.S. groups underrepresented in mathematics in the early career years are especially encouraged to apply. Please note that for any program, fellowship, prize or award that has a maximum period of eligibility after receipt of the doctoral degree, the selection committee may use discretion in making exceptions to the limit on eligibility for candidates whose careers have been interrupted for reasons such as family or health. You should state your exception on the application. This program is open to U.S. mathematicians only (U.S. mathematicians are those who are affiliated with a U.S. institution, and must be affiliated with a U.S. institution at the time of travel).

Early career applicants will have one or (at most) two letters of recommendation. Applications will be evaluated by a panel of mathematical scientists under the terms of a proposal submitted to the National Science Foundation (NSF) by the Society.

The following condition will apply: mathematicians accepting grants for partial support of the travel to MCA 2017 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds.

THE DEADLINE IS 11:59 P.M. EASTERN TIME ON November 10, 2016.
