Funding for Graduate Students speaking at the 2013 JMM

  • The AMS, with funding from a private gift, will be accepting applications for partial travel support for graduate students attending the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Diego, CA.
  • The awards, not to exceed US$500, must be matched by travel funds from the student's institution. Applications will be accepted ONLY from doctoral students in mathematics who are in their last years of study; i.e., applicants must not have received their doctoral degrees before the travel takes place but must expect to receive them no later than August of the upcoming year. No student shall receive a grant more than once.
  • The deadline for submitting applications is September 27, 2012, 11:59 EASTERN TIME. Funding is provided on a reimbursement basis. Awards or decline notifications will be made by email in late November 2012.


From their website:
  • “While the MAA is not a grant-making organization, we administer a variety of programs funded by public and private sources that provide funding to support activities that help advance the Association's goals. Some of these programs are ongoing, while some may only be funded for a few years.The MAA and the mathematical sciences community at large depend on many sources for maintaining a broad and vibrant range of activities. Ideas for new programs and potential initiatives, including sources to obtain funding, are welcome and should be directed to the appropriate MAA Committee. Alternatively, concepts or draft proposals can be directed to any officer of the MAA; Michael Pearson (mpearson@maa.org), Director of Programs and Services; or Christina Knowles (cknowles@maa.org), Associate Director for Development.”
