About the Fellowship

An MGB-SIAM Early Career Fellowship will allow for multiple opportunities to network within the SIAM community. These may include, but are not limited to, special thematic luncheons, professional development workshops and organization, committee shadowing, cohort-specific activities, as well as formal and informal mentoring.

Each year, a cohort of 5-8 fellowships will be awarded, with a fellowship duration of three (3) years.

Fellows will:

  • Receive complimentary SIAM membership for the duration of the fellowship;
  • Receive 50% reduction in SIAM membership fees for the four (4) years immediately after their fellowship has ended;
  • Have registration fees waived and receive $700 of travel support to attend the SIAM Annual Meeting each year for the duration of the fellowship;
  • Have registration fees waived and receive $700 of travel support to attend one additional SIAM Activity Group conference of the fellow’s choice in the United States or Canada.

Fellowship Responsibilities

  • Co-organize at least one (1) minisymposium in their research area at the SIAM Annual Meeting or at another SIAM Activity Group conference of the fellow’s choice in the United States or Canada;
  • Present a talk in at least one (1) Workshop Celebrating Diversity session.

  • Applicant must be an early career professional

  • CV/Resume (Maximum 2 pages)
  • Applicant Statement (Maximum 500 words): The SIAM community is a diverse collection of practitioners of industrial and applied mathematics and computational, data science. The applicant statement should provide details describing:
    • why the applicant is committed to industrial and applied mathematics, computational science, and data science;
    • how the applicant has previously supported and currently supports diversity, equity, and inclusion in their community; and

I am looking forward to connecting with the other fellows in my cohort. I am particularly excited about the minisymposium I will be organizing, and I plan on utilizing SIAM's resources and network to reach and attract a diverse audience. I hope to help develop sustainable spaces within SIAM for students and early career scientists from underrepresented groups, which will foster their sense of belonging in the applied mathematics community.
