|The AMS, with funding from a private gift, will be accepting applications for partial travel support for doctoral students who plan to attend one of the Spring, 2014 AMS Sectional Meetings.|
Each grant, if awarded, will provide $250 in partial support of attendance at one of the following Spring, 2014 Sectional Meetings:
March 21-23, 2014, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Knoxville, TN
March 29-30, 2014, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Baltimore, MD
April 5-6, 2014, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM
April 11-13, 2014, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX
It is the intention of the AMS to encourage each student's home institution to match the funds provided in support of the travel, but this is not a strict requirement. Applications will be accepted only from full time doctoral students in mathematics. No person may receive a sectional meeting travel grant more than once.

All information about AMS Sectional Meetings can be found in the Meetings section of the AMS website.
