AMS Grants for Graduate Student Travel to the JMM

With funding from the AMS Next Generation Fund, the AMS is pleased to offer grants for partial travel support for graduate students to attend the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in San Francisco, CA, January 3-6, 2024. Applications are especially encouraged from students from groups that have been underrepresented in the mathematical sciences and from those with no other support. Priority is given to students in their last two years of study who are presenting and those who expect to engage in professional development, networking, or job seeking while at the 2024 JMM. Awards will be made to support travel, lodging, subsistence, and registration and are not to exceed US$1,430. No student shall receive this grant more than once. 

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 doctoral students in mathematics in their last two years of study.  
    • Reside and study in the United States.
  • Applicants should…
    • Provide evidence that their participation in the JMM will advance their research agenda.
    • 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.

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 provide the email address of the individual at your institution who is your advisor, department chair, administrator or other faculty member capable of verifying your current graduate student status. Check the "send email on submit?" box, and when you submit your application, an email will be sent to that person to authorize your application. The representative of your school will receive a brief email, containing the link through which they will approve a statement verifying your status and the department's intent to match funding, if possible.
