Share, learn, and collaborate at an AMS meeting 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.
Recipients of a Virtual Grant will be provided with the necessary information for access to the virtual conference session.
- Available to active 2021 AMS student members and member graduate students. Eligible students must be a current senior undergraduate or graduate student.
- 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; this includes the AMS Specialty Conference Travel Grant Program (i.e., if a student applies for a travel grant to attend the AMS Annual Meeting and receives an award, that student is not eligible to apply for a specialty conference travel grant within that same calendar year).
