July 15, 2019 - Graduate Student Travel Grants - application deadline for AMS Fall Sectional Meetings is July 23!

With support from a private gift, the American Mathematical Society accepts applications for partial support for it's Joint Mathematics Meetings and Spring Sectional Meetings.

http://www.ams.org/programs/travel-grants/grad-students/emp-student-JMM

The Joint Mathematics Meetings

January 15 - 18, 2020, Denver, Colorado

Applications are accepted during the open period from August - September. This program supports only selected doctoral students in mathematics who are in their last year of study.

That is, applicants must not have received their doctoral degrees before the travel takes place, but must expect to receive it within twelve months of the JMM.

Grants will only be awarded once. Any student that has previously received a Travel Grant for the JMM will not be eligible to receive another JMM Travel Grant. The application period is now closed. The application period for JMM 2020 Grad Student Travel Grants will open in August.

AMS Fall Sectional Meetings

September 14-15, 2019, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI

October 12-13, 2019, Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY

November 2-3, 2019, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL

November 9-10, 2019, University of California-Riverside, Riverside, CA

Applications for any of these four sectional meetings will be accepted and considered as a group. The program accepts applications from current full time doctoral students at North American institutions. Travel grants will only be awarded once. Applications are now available. Find the application here. Deadline is July 23, 2019 at 11:59pm EST.
