AMS Graduate Student Chapter

AMS Graduate Student Chapter at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale

The AMS Student Chapter is a special interest group within the Math Club at SIUC. The Chapter was founded in 2017 with over a dozen founding members. The Chapter will support all of the activities of the Math Club and sponsor social functions for the mathematical community. It is devoted to the furtherance of the interests of mathematical scholarship and research. It will create ample opportunity to share ideas with fellow students and faculty.  Also, it will open funding and other opportunities for the chapter and its members. Indeed, it helps to discover career opportunities and find assistance for attending AMS meetings. It will sponsor invited speakers on topics of interest to graduate students in mathematics and related fields.
