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. Funding has been awarded by the NSF and the Society is now preparing to administer the selection process, which would be similar to previous programs funded in 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010
This program is open to U.S. mathematicians (those who are U.S. citizens or affiliated with a U.S. institution).
Early career mathematicians (those within six years of their doctorate), women and underrepresented minorities will be especially encouraged to apply. Early career mathematicians will be required to supply one letter from an individual who has made a commitment to serve as a mentor to the applicant during the period leading up to the International Congress, advising him or her about the appropriate sessions and activities in which to participate at the ICM-2014. Early career applicants will have the option of submitting one additional letter of recommendation. Please note that for any program, fellowship, prize or award that has a maximum period of eligibility after receipt of the doctoral degree, the selection committee may use discretion in making exceptions to the limit on eligibility for candidates whose careers have been interrupted for reasons such as family or health. You should state your exception on the application.
ICM 2014 Invited Speakers from U.S. institutions who desire funding should submit applications (see below).
Conditions on Funding
Mathematicians accepting grants for partial support of the travel to ICM 2014 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds. 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.
An individual mathematician who does not accept a travel grant may use regular NSF grant funds, subject to the usual restrictions and prior approval requirements.
The application period will be September 1 – November 15, 2013.
Early Career Mathematicians who have earned a PhD between the dates of 11/1/07 through 11/15/13 should use this application
Individuals who have been invited to give a lecture at the 2014 ICM should use this application
All other individuals interested in being considered for funding should use this application
