Grants

The Society offers a number of different grants schemes to support mathematics, including for mathematicians and computer scientists working at the interface of maths and computer science; education grants for teachers and other educators; and travel grants to attend conferences, among others.

Grant applicants should be a mathematician based in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands at the time of application and when the event, visit or meeting is planned. Please note that should a grant holder leave the UK before the planned event, visit or meeting then the grant will be withdrawn. If the grant is for a conference or event, then there is the possibility of the grant being transferred to a co-organiser who is still based in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.

Please note that only one grant, per Scheme, per person, per 新澳开奖financial year (1 August - 31 July) is allowed.

The life of an 新澳开奖Grant is two financial years (1 August - 31 July).听All awarded grants need to be claimed no later than the 31 July in the second year of the grant, i.e., if a grant is awarded in the 2022/23 financial year, the grant will need to be claimed by the 31 July 2025. Any grants that have not been claimed within the two-year period will be withdrawn.

The grant schemes are funded from the Society鈥檚 resources received from its endowments, investments and publishing activities and are one of the primary mechanisms through which the Society achieves its central purpose, namely to 'promote and extend mathematical knowledge'.听 The Society's current general grant-making policy can be found in the most recently published Trustees' Report here.

新澳开奖Caring Costs Policy聽

The 新澳开奖wishes to enable carers and parents to take part in the activities that it supports. Applicants for grants across Schemes 1-9, for Early Career Research activities or who will run Society Meetings can request funding to help mathematicians with caring or parenting responsibilities to participate in their activities. In addition, individuals requiring support for caring to attend conferences, workshops, research schools and meetings or to make research visits - not necessarily organised by 新澳开奖- can apply for a聽Caring Supplementary聽Grant聽to contribute to such costs.听聽
