The AMS Centennial Research Fellowship Program makes an award annually to an outstanding mathematician to help further their career in research. The primary selection criterion for the Centennial Fellowship is the excellence of the candidate’s research.

The eligibility rules are as follows.

  • Preference will be given to candidates who have not had extensive fellowship support in the past.
  • Recipients may not hold the Centennial Fellowship concurrently with another major research award such as a Sloan fellowship, NSF Postdoctoral fellowship, or CAREER award.
  • Under normal circumstances, the fellowship cannot be deferred.
  • A recipient of the fellowship shall have held their doctoral degree for at least three years and not more than twelve years at the awarding of the Fellowship (that is, received between September 1, 2011 and September 1, 2020).
  • Applications will be accepted from those currently holding a tenured, tenure track, post-doctoral, or comparable (at the discretion of the selection committee) position at an institution in North America.
  • A recipient of the fellowship must be a member of the AMS at the time of application.
  • A recipient of the fellowship must be a citizen or permanent resident of a country in North America.

The fellowship to be awarded for 2023-2024 is expected to be in the amount of $50,000. Note that no overhead costs will be covered by this grant.

Deadline: December 1
