Travel Grants for ICME-12 in Seoul, Korea

Twelfth International Congress
on Mathematical Education (ICME-12)

July 8-15, 2012, Seoul, Korea 

Applications are now closed for travel grants to attend the Twelfth International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME-12) to be held in Seoul, Korea, from July 8-15, 2012. ( Notifications will be made by January 16, 2012.

The grants are open to the broader mathematics education community of U.S. citizens and permanent resident aliens. Elementary, middle, and high school teachers and graduate students are strongly encouraged to apply.   

The International Congresses are held every four years and offer a unique opportunity for mathematics educators from the United States to discuss issues related to mathematics education with leaders in the field from around the world. Grants will enable participants to hear world-renowned scholars in mathematics and mathematics education as they share insights from research and best practice and participate in small, focused discussion groups on a wide range of topics, including mathematics education for second language learners, the relationship between research and practice in mathematics education, the professional development of mathematics teachers, assessment and testing in mathematics education, socio-economic influence on students' achievement, and analysis of uses of technology in mathematics teaching and learning.


Travel grants are contingent on the funding of a proposal pending at the National Science Foundation (NSF).  If approved, grants will be available and awarded by the beginning of 2012. The NSF grants are available only to U.S. citizens and permanent resident aliens and will support travel expenses to ICME-12 for K-12 mathematics teachers, mathematicians, graduate students and mathematics teacher educators from the United States.

Supported travel expenses include hotel accommodations, meal costs, and conference registration. Grant money can also be used toward air transportation (on United States carriers only). Awardees under this program may not use funds from other NSF programs to supplement their international travel (airfare to Korea or subsistence at ICME-12) without special permission.


A selection committee will review applications and award the travel grants based on set criteria. The committee will include representatives from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Mathematical Association of America, the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges, the American Mathematical Society, and the U. S. National Commission on Mathematics Instruction.
