Grants for Graduate Student
Activities at Section Meetings

The MAA has recently approved funding to support increased graduate student participation at section meetings. Proposals are being solicited by the Committee on Graduate Students to support pilot projects during calendar year 2004. Ten Section Grants of a maximum of $400 each will be awarded to fund innovative programs to attract graduate students to attend and participate in Section meetings. The Committee plans to review proposals during the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Phoenix and will announce awards by January 16. The Committee expects to fund a variety of prototypes and plans to evaluate the success of different models and communicate ideas for increasing graduate student participation to all sections at the conclusion of the pilot project.

Deadline for proposals is January 3, 2004. For further details and guidelines, see
