The London Mathematical Society annually awards a £5,000 Cecil King Travel Scholarship in Mathematics to a young mathematician of outstanding promise. The scholarship is awarded to support a period of study or research abroad, typically for a period of three months. Study or research in all areas of mathematics is eligible for the award.
The award is competitive and based on a written proposal describing the intended programme of study or research abroad, and the benefits to be gained from such a visit. A shortlist of applicants will be selected for an interview during which they will be expected to make a short presentation on their proposal.
Applicants must be nationals of the UK or the Republic of Ireland, either registered for or having completed a doctoral degree within 12 months of the closing date.
UPDATE 21/4/15: The deadline for entries has been extended to 1 June 2015.
