The AMS, with funding from a private gift, will be accepting applications for partial travel support for doctoral students (at domestic institutions) who plan to attend one of the Spring, 2018 AMS Sectional Meetings.

Each grant, if awarded, will provide $250 in partial support of attendance at one of the following Spring, 2018 Sectional Meetings:

March 17-18, 2018, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH
April 14-15, 2018, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN
April 14-15, 2018, Portland State University, Portland, OR
April 21-22, 2018, Northeastern University, Boston, MA

It is the intention of the AMS to encourage each student's home institution to match the funds provided in support of the travel. Applications will be accepted only from doctoral students in mathematics at a domestic institution. No person may receive a sectional meeting travel grant more than once.
