Cecil King Travel Scholarship

 

The London Mathematical Society annually awards a £5000 Cecil King Travel Scholarship in Mathematics, to a young mathematician of outstanding promise.  The Scholarship is awarded to support a period of study or research abroad, typically for a period of three months.

The award is competitive and based on a written proposal describing the intended programme of study or research abroad and the benefits to be gained from such a visit.  A shortlist of applicants will be selected for interview.

Applicants must be nationals of the UK or the Republic of Ireland, either registered for or having completed a doctoral degree within 12 months of the closing date.

Applications for the 2017 Cecil King Travel Scholarship will open later in 2016.

 

The Cecil King Travel Scholarship was established in 2001 by the Cecil King Memorial Fund. The award is made by the Council of the London Mathematical Society on the recommendation of the Cecil King Prize Committee, nominated by the Society's Research Meetings Committee.
