|The AMS, with funding from a private gift, will be accepting applications for partial travel support for graduate students attending the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta, GA, January 4-7, 2017.
The awards, not to exceed US$500, will ideally be matched by travel funds from the student's institution, but this is not a strict requirement. Applications will be accepted ONLY from doctoral students in mathematics who are in their last year of study; i.e., applicants must not have received their doctoral degrees before the travel takes place but must expect to receive them within twelve months of the JMM. No student shall receive a grant more than once.
Information can be found at |
All information about the Joint Mathematics Meetings can be found in the Meetings section of the AMS website. The deadline for submitting applications is September 28, 2016, 11:59pm EASTERN TIME. Awards or decline notifications will be made by email in the 1st week of November 2016. Payment will only be made after a completed travel voucher (provided to awardees by the AMS) is received following the travel. This travel grant program is being administered by the AMS Membership & Programs Department. You can reach Pamela Morin at student-JMM@ams.org, or 800-321-4267, ext. 4060, or 401-455-4060:

Please note reference letters are NOT required or allowed. Applying for this travel grant requires an Institutional Authorization to be attached to your application. Please give the email address of the individual at your institution who is your advisor, department chair, administrator or other faculty member capable of verifying your status. When you submit this application and have the "send email on submit?" box checked, an email will be sent to that person to authorize your application.
The representative of your school will receive a brief e-mail, containing the link where they will approve a statement verifying your status and the department's intent to match funding, if possible.
