Virtual Student Travel Grants

Virtual Student Travel Grants

Access the virtual elements of the 101st Annual Meeting for free!

AMS Annual Meeting Virtual Student Travel Grants afford an outstanding opportunity for students interested in attending the world’s largest yearly gathering for the weather, water, and climate community. AMS wants to encourage interactions among students, their peers, and professionals in the field. These virtual travel grants are intended for students who are not presenting and who will be serving as a student assistant for the 101st Annual Meeting. 


  • Available to active 2020 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; this includes the AMS Specialty Conference Travel Grant Program.  i.e., 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.
