Student Travel Grants

AMS Student Travel Grants

Share, learn, and collaborate at a specialty conference for free!

AMS recognizes the considerable benefit that students can gain from attending conferences even if they are not presenting a paper and wants to encourage interactions between students and other conference attendees.

Covered Expenses

The grant will cover round trip air travel (within North America) to the meeting, hotel room and tax (the recipient of a grant is responsible for meals and any extra charges on the hotel bill), and conference registration fee (excluding student conference and short courses). Students may be asked to share a room with one or two other awardees at the discretion of AMS.


  • Available to AMS student members and members with student privileges who are senior undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Awarded to students who are not presenting a paper at the conference. (Note: This restriction does not apply to presentations at the Student Conference.)
  • 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)

Application Process and Deadline Information

Students must complete an application to participate.  Use your AMS member online profile to access the application.  Be sure to fill in all areas of the form.
