The American Mathematical Society (AMS) has received funds from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to provide partial travel support for up to sixty U.S. mathematicians attending the inaugural meeting of the Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA) to be held August 5-9, 2013 in Guanajuato, Mexico.
Instructions on how to apply for support are available on the AMS website here. The application period will be September 15-October 31, 2012. This travel grants program will be administered by the Membership and Programs Department of the AMS.
The program is open to U.S. mathematicians (who must be affiliated with a U.S. institution at the time of travel). It is expected that the program will provide travel support for both U.S.-based invited speakers (senior mathematicians) and early career mathematicians. 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. Invited speakers from U.S. institutions to MCA 2013 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 NSF by the AMS.
Mathematicians accepting grants for partial support of travel to MCA 2013 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 MCA in 2013. 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.
All information currently available about the MCA 2013 program, organization and registration procedure is located on the Congress website.
