Student Travel Grants

Travel grants are available for current senior undergraduate and graduate students to attend the 94th AMS Annual Meeting. AMS recognizes the considerable benefit that students can gain from attending conferences even if they are not presenting a paper.  AMS wants to encourage interactions between students and other conference attendees. To this end, travel grants will be awarded to students who are not presenting a paper at a conference during the annual meeting.  Take note that presenting at the AMS Annual Student Conference does not fall under this rule.

Travel grants are available to AMS student members and members with student privileges.   A student can receive no more than one travel grant award per calendar year, and may not apply for more than two meetings per calendar year, and not more than one conference per meeting (with the annual meeting counting as a single meeting), i.e., a student applies for travel grant to the annual meeting and receives an award, that student is not eligible to apply for another conference within the calendar year.

The grant will cover round-trip air travel to the meeting, hotel room and tax (the grant recipient is responsible for meals and incidentals), and conference registration fee, excluding short courses. Students will share a room with one or two other awardees at the discretion of AMS.
