|The AMS is administering a program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to provide partial travel support for U.S. mathematicians attending the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM 2014) August 13-21, 2014, in Seoul, Korea. |
Early career mathematicians within six years of their doctorate (that is, those who hold a doctorate granted between November 1, 2007, and November 15, 2013) are invited to apply. Please note women, and members of U.S. groups underrepresented in mathematics in the early career years are especially encouraged to apply. Please note that 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. You should state your exception on the application. This program is open to U.S. mathematicians only (U.S. mathematicians are those who are affiliated with a U.S. institution, and must be affiliated with a U.S. institution at the time of travel).
Early career mathematicians will be required to supply one letter from an individual who has made a commitment to serve as a mentor to the applicant during the period leading up to the International Congress, advising him or her about the appropriate sessions and activities in which to participate at the ICM-2014. Please enter the name and email of your mentor on your AMS coversheet in the references section. Once you submit the form, you mentor will receive log in information so that he/she can upload the mentor letter. Early career applicants will have the option of submitting one additional letter of recommendation. Applications will be evaluated by a panel of mathematical scientists under the terms of a proposal submitted to the National Science Foundation (NSF) by the Society.
The following conditions will apply: mathematicians accepting grants for partial support of the travel to ICM 2014 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds. Currently, it is the intention of the NSF's Division of Mathematical Sciences to provide no additional funds on its other regular research grants for travel to ICM in 2014. However, an individual mathematician who does not receive a travel grant may use regular NSF grant funds, subject to the usual restrictions and prior approval requirements.
THE DEADLINE IS 11:59 P.M. EASTERN TIME ON November 15, 2013.
