    Attending ICME-12 in Seoul on a NCTM Travel was a life-changing experience for me. Meeting with teachers from Korea and from around the world gave me a better appreciation of what it takes to offer a high-quality mathematics education for all our students. This truly was one of the best professional experiences of my life, and I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to attend.

    Applications for ICME-14 travel grants are now available to attend the Fourteenth International Congress on Mathematical Education ( ICME-14), to be held in Shanghai, China from July 12-19, 2020. 

    Application deadline is October 15, 2019. Grants will be awarded by February 1, 2020.

    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 international leaders from developed and developing countries. Travel grants give participants the opportunity to interact with mathematics educators from across countries, listen to world-renowned scholars in mathematics and mathematics education, and take part in small, focused topic study groups on a wide range of topics.

    The ICME-14 travel grants are funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation (PD# 35281) and are available only to U.S. citizens or those working in the U.S. on a green card.

Travel grant awardees under this program may not use additional funds from other NSF programs to supplement their international travel.

    Criteria for awarding grants are available.   The selection 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 Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, the American Mathematical Society, and the U.
