AMS Publication Subventions

Spring 2016

The AMS is happy to announce its latest round of publication subventions. Twenty-six books have been granted nearly $46,000 in funds to support publication expenses.

Funding for AMS subventions is provided through the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the generous support of AMS members and friends. Publication subventions are administered by the Publications Committee of the AMS.

Those interested in applying for AMS publication subventions are encouraged to do so. See the program descriptions for full details. Deadlines are 15 February, 15 August (or the closest business day following).
