    Hello all,

    I received the following announcement from our friends at SIAM. They asked that we cross-promote this important new opportunity.

    From SIAM:

    We are excited to announce that applications are now open for SIAM's brand-new program, the MGB-SIAM Early Career Fellowship! The intent of this Fellowship is to recognize the achievements of early career applied mathematicians – particularly those belonging to racial and ethnic groups historically excluded from the mathematical sciences in the United States – and to provide meaningful support for professional activities and career development. Apply now through November 15, 2021 and please share this program with your colleagues who may be eligible.

    MGB-SIAM Early Career Fellows will receive:

    • Complimentary SIAM membership for the duration of the Fellowship
    • Complimentary registration to SIAM Annual Meetings and one additional SIAM Activity Group meeting
    • Travel support to attend SIAM meetings
    • Mentoring and professional development opportunities
    • Leadership and conference organization experience

    The MGB-SIAM Early Career Fellowship reflects a joint commitment by Mathematically Gifted & Black (MGB) and SIAM to promote long-term engagement of fellows within SIAM and continued success within the wider applied mathematics and computational sciences community.


    Visit the MGB-SIAM Early Career Fellowship website for more information about the eligibility criteria, required materials, and more. Current SIAM membership is not required to apply. For questions, please contact us here.
