To date, 348 students have been designated as AMS fellowship recipients. The program helps these first-year graduate students to be educated about unique challenges facing the world so that they may better tackle these real-world issues after graduation. Fellowships come with several benefits that include financial support to maintain a full course load over their first year of graduate study, the opportunity to be special guests at the AMS Annual Meeting with exclusive events therein, ongoing academic and career advocation and support from AMS.
