Student Travel Grants
Travel grants are available to current senior undergraduate or graduate students interested in attending an AMS Annual Meeting. AMS recognizes the considerable benefit that students can gain from attending both student and professional sessions and events, even if they are not presenting a paper there. Interactions between students and other conference attendees are encouraged by AMS. To this end, travel grants will be awarded to students who are not presenting a paper at the professional conference (presenting a paper at the student conference does not fall under this rule)
The travel grants are available only to AMS student members and members with student privileges. For current members, the 2015 membership dues should be renewed online by September 30th and prior to applying for a student assistant position. If you are not a member and would like to apply for a student assistant position, you must submit an online membership application and pay for the full year of 2015.
Potential candidates must not be presenting a paper at a professional meeting. 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 (within North America) to the meeting, hotel room and tax (the recipient of the grant will be responsible for meals and any extra charges on the hotel bill), and conference registration fee (excluding short courses). Students will share a room with one or two other awardees at the discretion of AMS.
