Student Travel Grants In fall 2008, MAA got subsidizing from NSF to bolster understudy investment in MathFest and the Joint Mathematics Meetings. Travel gifts will be accessible to college understudies from over the U.S. for at any rate the following five years, giving an examination capstone experience to more than 600 understudies. Extra subsidizing from NSA will extend the bolster accessible to students, and also giving backing to graduate understudies going to MathFest. Application for financing is a piece of the theoretical accommodation process.

Study Tours Mathematical Study visits for individuals offered following 2003. Twenty six voyagers partook in the 2008 voyage through the Ecuador and Peru. Intelligent pieces by of five of the voyagers are in the December 2008 issue of MAA Focus .

Almost 400,000 exams taken at all evaluation levels. School and colleges can have challenges and reinforce ties with secondary schools and brilliant understudies. MAA co-supported investment of two four-part groups of secondary school young ladies in the 2008 China Girls Math Olympiad held in ZhongShan, China, August 14-21, 2008. Each of the eight young ladies earned a decoration. 2008 International Mathematical Olympiad held in Madrid, Spain; USA group in third place, gaining four gold awards, two silver decorations, and one flawless paper.

Financials Financial Highlights: Total speculation: Around $6M excluding reserves for others companies (Sliffe and Walter B. Passage). Yearly working wage 2007: $7.4M. Financial plan for 2008 : $7.7M Total incomes 2007: $10.3M, of which $3.7M from productions, $1.2M from commitments, and $1.3M from participations.
