Travel Grant Program for Early Career Mathematicians 
for the 2021 Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA)

The AMS is administering a program, with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), to provide partial travel support for early career U.S. mathematicians (with no external research support) attending the 2021 Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA 2021) July 19-24, 2021, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Early career mathematicians within six years of their doctorate (that is, those who have received a doctorate no earlier than July 2015) are invited to apply using this application. Please note women, and members of U.S. groups underrepresented in mathematics in the early career years are especially encouraged to apply. 

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/organization, and who must be affiliated with a U.S. institution/organization at the time of travel).

Early career applicants must submit one or (at most) two letters 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.

  • Mathematicians accepting grants for partial support of the travel to MCA 2021 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds.
  • AMS Employees are not eligible. 


All information currently available about the MCA 2021 program, organization and registration procedure is located on the MCA 2021 website.
