NZMS Student Travel Awards
One of the main activities of the NZMS is the provision of financial support to students in mathematics in New Zealand. Towards this aim, the Society invites applications for Student Travel Awards from students to support them presenting their research at conferences, attending workshops, and developing new collaborations. Preference may be given to students enrolled for postgraduate degrees.
NZMS Student Travel Awards are not intended to cover the full costs of attending a conference or workshop. Rather they are intended as a contribution towards these costs and to give students experience in applying for external funding.
Awards will normally be for amounts in the range $500 to $1500. Typical Awards for travel within NZ and Australia are in the range $200 to $600, with larger Awards considered for travel further overseas.
The NZMS Student Travel Awards will be awarded to students enrolled for a degree in mathematical sciences at a New Zealand University who can demonstrate that they are involved in the NZ Mathematics community. Students must be enrolled at the time of the proposed travel.
Students may apply for a NZMS Travel Award more than once during their enrolment for a postgraduate degree.
When to apply
Retrospective applications will not be considered and applications must be made well in advance. The funded travel must be at least one month after the application deadline, but applications further in advance are preferred.
All funded travel must be completed within nine months of notification of the award or funding must be returned.
The quarterly deadlines for 2023 Student Travel Grant applications are: 15 February, 15 May, 15 August, and 15 November. You will hear back from the Council within a month of the deadline.
How to apply
Applications for Student Travel Awards can be made to the NZMS Council by sending the Student Travel Award application form and required supporting documentation as a single pdf file to the NZMS Secretary: Assoc Prof Dimitrios Mitsotakis.
Guidelines for preparing supporting material can be found on page 3 of the application form.

NZMS Financial Assistance
The NZ Mathematical Society Council invites applications for financial assistance with the costs of mathematical research-related activity. Any research-related activity that furthers the objects of the Society will be considered. For example: hosting mathematical visitors; organising conferences, workshops, or outreach activities; and conference attendance, including costs associated with family responsibilities.
Financial assistance is separated into the categories:
A relatively high priority will be given to applications involving contact between the mathematical communities of New Zealand and the islands of the South Pacific.
Research Grant: Non-student members of the NZ Mathematical Society.
Conference/Workshop Organisation: Organisers of NZ-based mathematical conferences, workshops, outreach activities.
South Pacific Fund: Researchers from the University of the South Pacific.
How to apply
Applications to the NZMS Council should be made using the Financial assistance application form. Completed application forms and supporting documentation should be sent as a single pdf file to the NZMS Secretary: Assoc Prof Dimitrios Mitsotakis.
When to apply
Retrospective applications will not be considered. The funded activity must be at least one month after the application deadline, but applications further in advance are preferred.
The quarterly deadlines for 2023 Financial Assistance applications are: 15 February, 15 May, 15 August, and 15 November. You will hear back from the Council within a month of the deadline.
