AMS Annual Meeting Travel Grants (MPD)

The AMS offers Annual Meeting Travel Grants (MPD Committee) to AMS members who have little or no financial support for travel to participate in the Annual Meeting of the Society. The purpose of this grant is to aid non-affiliated scholars and those with institutional appointments but little or no financial support for conference travel.

Grants of up to $500 (applicants outside North America) and $350 (applicants in North America) (subject to funding availability) are available to those who are presenting papers or performances, chairing sessions, or serving on an AMS Committee. Graduate students presenting papers at the Annual Meeting of the Society are also eligible for Annual Meeting Travel Grants, if the home institution is unable to provide sufficient support.

As a general rule, scholars will not be funded two years in a row. This grant does not include a waiver of the Annual Meeting registration fee. Prior to 2022, this program was called Membership and Professional Development Grants (MPD).
