The Committee for Women and Diversity in Mathematics offers the following schemes to support mathematicians:
Caring Supplementary Grants
To enable parents and other carers to attend conferences and other research schools, meetings or visits by making a contribution towards caring costs.
Maximum award: £200
Applications are open year-round, and decisions are made on a quarterly basis in September, December, March ann June.
Grace Chisholm Young Fellowships

Maximum award: £2,000 (£1,500 to applicant, £500 stipend to the university)
Deadline: 31 December
Emmy Noether Fellowships
Fellowships of 1 year to enhance the maths research of holders either re-establishing their career after a break or dealing with significant caring responsibilities.
Awards: between £2,000 and £10,000, to a total of £25,000
Deadline: there is no fixed deadline for this scheme but the call for applications is normally issed in February or March.
