Grants to Advance Women’s Expertise in Mathematics
The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) has administered the NSF–AWM Travel Grant Program for Women since 1988, supporting both travel to domestic or foreign research conferences and, more recently, longer-term visits with a mentor. The Mathematics Travel Grants provide full or partial support for travel and subsistence for a meeting or conference in applicants’ fields of specialization, giving them a valuable opportunity to advance their research activities and their visibility in the research community. The Mathematics Mentoring Travel Grants are intended to help junior women to develop a long-term working and mentoring relationship with a senior mathematician. This relationship should help the junior mathematician to establish her research program and eventually receive tenure. Each grant funds travel, accommodations, and other required expenses for an untenured woman mathematician to travel to an institute or a department to do research with a specified individual for one month. The applicant’s and the mentor’s research must be in a field supported by the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the National Science Foundation. All awards will be determined on a competitive basis by a selection panel consisting of distinguished mathematicians appointed by the AWM. Grants up of to $2,300 for domestic travel and $3,500 for foreign travel will be awarded.
Deadlines: May 1, 2019, October 1, 2019, and February 2, 2020, for applications
Developed by Designmate for iOS devices, the Eureka.in-NSES app enables students of different age ranges and with diverse interests, abilities, and experiences to achieve scientific and mathematical excellence even in abstract concepts such as the Structure of DNA, Complex Physical Laws, or Intricate Chemical Bonds.
Since 1983 the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) have been recognizing excellent educators spanning all corners of the country from one-room schoolhouses in rural Montana to large school systems in the heart of New York City.
