About the Mathematics Research Communities:

Mathematics Research Communities (MRC), a program of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), nurtures early-career mathematicians--those who are close to finishing their doctorates or have recently finished--and provides them with opportunities to build social and collaborative networks through which they can inspire and sustain each other in their work.

The structured program is designed to engage and guide all participants as they start their careers. For each topic,the program includes a one-week summer conference; a Special Session at the next Joint Mathematics Meetings; and a longitudinal study of early career mathematicians.

Those accepted into this program will receive a flat rate transportation allowance for the summer conference, and will be partially supported for their participation in the Joint Mathematics Meetings which follow in January 2021.

ELIGIBILITY: Individuals within one to two years prior to the receipt of their PhDs, and up to five years after receipt of their PhDs, are welcome to apply.  Most of those supported by NSF funds to participate in the MRC program will be US-based, that is, employed by or a full-time student at a US institution at the time of the MRC summer conference. However, the terms of the grant allow for a limited number of individuals who are not US-based. A few international participants may be accepted. Depending on space and other factors, a small number of participant slots may be available for self-funders. Applicants wishing to be considered as possible self-funded participants should email ams-mrc@ams.org at the time they apply and state that intention. Self-funders must satisfy the same criteria for admission as those who receive grant support. Individuals who have once previously been an MRC participant will be considered for admission, and their applications must include a rationale for repeating. Please note that individuals cannot participate in the MRC program more than twice. Applications from individuals who have twice been MRC participants will not be considered. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.  All participants are expected to be active in the full MRC program.

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. Therefore, an applicant who has had to slow down or temporarily stop his or her career for personal reasons may request to be considered for an extension in the amount of time after the PhD degree. Please send exception requests to ams-mrc@ams.org.

The 2019 summer conferences were held at Whispering Pines Conference Center in West Greenwich, Rhode Island, and AMS anticipates this will be the same location for the 2020 conferences.

Applications will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday, February 15, 2020. Note that all applicants will be notified of their status by May 1, 2020.
