AMS Grants for PUI Faculty Travel to the JMM

The AMS is pleased to offer grants for faculty from primarily-undergraduate institutions (PUIs) to attend the 2024 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in San Francisco, California. With generous support from an anonymous donor, awards will be made to support travel, lodging, subsistence, and registration. We seek applications from faculty at all career stages who can identify benefits to their research, teaching, or departmental leadership from participating in the JMM and who would not be able to attend without this support. Individuals from groups historically-underrepresented in mathematics are especially encouraged to apply. The maximum reimbursement amount will depend on the applicant’s AMS membership status at the time of application: support of up to $1,155 for non-members, and up to $2,310 for members.

As the largest annual gathering of mathematical people in the world, the JMM provides its registrants a rich scientific program, opportunities to connect and network with others in the mathematical community, professional enhancement programsworkshops, career and job search resources, exhibits, and more.

Eligibility, Considerations, and Applications

  • Applicants must…
    • Be employed full-time at U.S. institutions typically offering a associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degree as their highest degree in mathematics.  
    • Be principally involved as a faculty member in such areas as mathematics, statistics, or mathematics education research.
    • Reside and work in the United States.
  • Applicants should…
    • Provide evidence that their participation in the JMM will benefit their research, teaching, or departmental leadership.
    • Show that support from this grant would be key to their traveling to the JMM site, i.e., that they do not have other substantial support that could be used instead. 
  • Applicants may…
    • Use the grant to participate in JMM activities such as giving a talk in one of the sessions, serving as a panelist or workshop presenter, or participating in the AMS Chairs and Leaders Workshop (January 2, 2024).
    • Provide an explanation for special circumstances surrounding their application.
