Student Assistant Program

Do you have what it takes to be an AMS Student Assistant? 

We are looking for dependable undergraduate student members to work directly with AMS staff members at the AMS Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. Students must be able to assist the full week. Student Assistants will be provided with hotel accommodations (shared with one or two other students), meeting registration (short courses not included), and a small per diem for meal expenses. Travel costs are not covered under this program.

When not working, students can network, attend sessions, and visit the exhibit area. Although being a student assistant is a demanding job, it is fun and educationally rewarding too!


Undergraduate sophomore, junior and senior AMS student members or full members with student privileges are eligible. Membership must be current to apply.  Check your member status in your account profile and renew for the full year of 2019 if necessary. Apply for student membership if you are not a member and pay for the full year of 2019. For more information about the benefits of membership, please visit our member page

Application Process

Applications are due on 4 October 2019.

Interested students must complete the online application form. Please log in using your AMS credentials once you've clicked the application button below. Your academic advisor will receive an email for validation of your good standing once the application is submitted. Applications are reviewed after the deadline date and positions are filled until the required number is met. If all positions are filled, a waiting list will be established for remaining qualified applicants in the case a position opens. We prefer to accept no more than four students from any one school unless there are not sufficient applicants from other locations. All candidates are notified by email of their standing.
