James Crowley Endowed Fund for Student Support

To honor the 2020 retirement marking the distinguished 25-year career of Dr. James Crowley as SIAM Executive Director, the SIAM Board has established this fund to raise support for applied mathematics students. This fund will provide support for initiatives such as: SIAM Student Chapters and their important role in encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration and networking of students and faculty; student prizes; SIAM career fairs; scholarship opportunities; new student programming; and other student needs.

Student Travel Fund

SIAM Student Travel Awards are here to help students gain the experience and exposure that comes from attending and presenting at SIAM Conferences. Travel awards are intended to help students defray costs of their attendance, like travel and registration fees, which may be restrictive to students. SIAM typically provides $250,000+ in student travel awards annually.
