Virtual Travel Grants

AMS Annual Meeting Virtual Student Travel Grants afford an outstanding opportunity for students interested in attending the world’s largest yearly gathering for the weather, water, and climate community. To encourage interactions among students, their peers, and professionals in the field, AMS provides free registration to this year's virtual Annual Meeting. These virtual travel grants are intended for students who are not presenting.
