Cecil King Travel Scholarships

 

The London Mathematical Society administers two £6,000 travel awards funded by the Cecil King Memorial Foundation for early career mathematicians, to support a period of study or research abroad, typically for a period of three months. One Scholarship will be awarded to a mathematician in any area of mathematics and one to a mathematician whose research is applied in a discipline other than mathematics. 

Eligibility Criteria and How to Apply

Applicants should be mathematicians in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland who are under the age of 30 at the closing date for applications, and who are registered for a doctoral degree or have completed one within 12 months of the closing date for applications. The LMS encourages applications from women, disabled, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates, as these groups are under-represented in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland mathematics.
