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 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 and the Republic of Ireland mathematics.
To apply, please complete the application form (available from September 2021) and include a written proposal describing the intended programme of study or research abroad, and the benefits to be gained from such a visit.
The next application deadline will be 23.59 on 15 November 2021.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an online interview in January 2022 during which they will be expected to make a short (10-15 minute) presentation on their proposal, followed by 15-20 minutes for questions.
