Grants Available: Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA)

Below is a new travel grant available for the Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA). SIAM is proud to be a member of the Math Council of Americas which sponsors the Math Congress of the Americas.

This travel grant program is contingent on receiving funding from the National Science Foundation.

Up to 100 travel grants will provide partial travel support for U.S. mathematicians attending the Mathematical Congress of the Americas (MCA) that will take place July 24-28, 2017 in Montreal, Canada. The Society is preparing to administer the selection process. Please forward this announcement to interested mathematical scientists.

Instructions on how to apply are available on the AMS website at This travel grants program will be administered by the Membership and Programs Department, American Mathematical Society, 201 Charles Street, Providence, RI 02904-2294. For questions or more information, contact Kim Kuda at [email protected], 800-321-4267, ext. 4096 or 401-455-4096.

This program is open to U.S. mathematicians (those who are affiliated with a U.S. institution, and must be affiliated with a U.S. institution at the time of travel). It is expected that this travel grant 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 to MCA 2017 who are 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.

The following conditions will apply: mathematicians accepting grants for partial support of the travel to MCA 2017 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds. Should NSF fund this program, it will be 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 2017. 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 2017 program, organization and registration procedure is located on the MCA 2017 website:
