Travel grants

We are pleased to acknowledge the National Science Foundation for supporting travel grants for student and postdoctoral speakers at BEST. (If you are in another category and could use funding, let us know as well.) We strongly encourage members of groups underrepresented in mathematics to apply!

The application deadline has passed, but you are still welcome to submit an application!

Travel grants may be awarded to US citizens, US residents, and persons at US universities. The funds may be used to reimburse (a portion of) registration, travel, and lodging.
