The AMS, with funding from a private gift, will be accepting applications for partial travel support for doctoral students (at domestic institutions) who plan to attend one of the Spring, 2017 AMS Sectional Meetings.

Each grant, if awarded, will provide $250 in partial support of attendance at one of the following Spring, 2017 Sectional Meetings:

March 10-12, 2017, College of Charleston, Charleston, SC
April 1-2, 2017, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN
April 22-23, 2017, Washington State University, Pullman, WA
May 6-7, 2017, Hunter College, City University of New York, New York, NY

It is the intention of the AMS to encourage each student's home institution to match the funds provided in support of the travel. Applications will be accepted only from doctoral students in mathematics. No person may receive a sectional meeting travel grant more than once.
