Grants

The Society offers a number of different grants schemes to support mathematics, including research grants 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.

The grant schemes are funded from the Society’s 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'.
