Travel Grants for ICM 2014, Seoul, Korea, August 13 - 21, 2014

created 04  Aug  2013

The American Mathematical Society has applied to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for funds to permit partial travel support for U.S. mathematicians attending the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM 2014) August 13 - 21, 2014, in Seoul, Korea. Subject to the award decision by the NSF, the Society is preparing to administer the selection process, which would be similar to previous programs funded in 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010.

Instructions on how to apply for support will be available on the AMS website at The application period will be September 1 – November 15, 2013. This travel grants program, if funded, will be administered by the Membership and Programs Department, AMS, 201 Charles Street, Providence, RI 02904-2294.

You can contact us at, 800-321-4267, ext. 4113 or 401-455-4113. This program is open to U.S. mathematicians (those who are currently affiliated with a U.S. institution). Early career mathematicians (those within six years of their doctorate), women, and members of U.S. groups underrepresented in mathematics are especially encouraged to apply. ICM 2014 Invited Speakers from U.S. institutions should submit applications, if funding is desired.

Applications will be evaluated by a panel of mathematical scientists under the terms of a proposal submitted to the National Science Foundation (NSF) by the Society.

Should the proposal to the NSF be funded, the following conditions will apply: mathematicians accepting grants for partial support of the travel to ICM 2014 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds. Currently, it is the intention of the NSF's Division of Mathematical Sciences to provide no additional funds on its other regular research grants for travel to ICM in 2014. However, an individual mathematician who does not receive a travel grant may use regular NSF grant funds, subject to the usual restrictions and prior approval requirements.
