Committee on Membership and Professional Development (CMPD)

The AMS offers Professional Development Travel Grants 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 (overseas applicants) and $350 (U.S./Canada applicants) (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 Professional Development Travel Grants, if the home institution is unable to provide sufficient support.

For the Annual Meetings in 2015, 2016, and 2017, the AMS Board of Directors has made additional Professional Travel Grants of up to $200 available, funded through the the Keitel/Palisca Endowment.

These are intended to assist AMS members to attend the Annual Meeting. This initiative is open to all Student and Low Income members of the AMS.

As a general rule, scholars will not be funded two years in a row.

Current AMS members, please log in to access the application.

Non-members wishing to apply must first join the society. Please click here for more information on joining.
