Student Travel Grants
About Undergraduate Student Travel Grants
The MAA, with funding from the National Science Foundation Division of Mathematical Sciences, provides limited funding to support student travel to our annual meetings. MAA will award no more than one travel grant per person and has adopted the following policy for distributing travel funds.
All undergraduates presenting posters or talks at annual meetings of the MAA (MathFest and the Joint Mathematics Meetings) are eligible for funding. Subject to the availability of funds, the MAA will grant a maximum of $400.00 in support of direct expenses incurred traveling to and attending the meeting, not including subsistence or meeting registration fees (required for all participants).
Each successful applicant will be informed in advance of the meeting as to the amount of his/her grant. The awarding of a travel grant is contingent upon making a presentation at the meeting and submission of original receipts for expenses. Students who accept Travel Support are expected to participate fully in all aspects of the meetings.
