I have the following announcement to share with you.
TRAVEL GRANTS FOR ICME-8, SEVILLE, SPAIN
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has applied to the National Science Foundation for funds to permit travel support for U.S. mathematics teachers at all levels, mathematics supervisors, teacher educators and researchers to participate in the 1996 International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME-8) in Seville, Spain, July 14-21, 1996. In anticipation of the availability of funds, the Council is preparing to administer the selection process.
Applications forms for support and the First Announcement of the congress may be obtained by writing to Department I, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 1906 Association Drive, Reston, VA 22091-1593, by calling (703) 620-9840 ext. 113, by faxing (703) 476-2970 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed applications must be received in the NCTM office by March 15, 1996. Applicants will be notified by April 30, 1996. Women and members of minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.
Applications will be evaluated by a panel of mathematics educators and mathematicians under the terms of a proposal submitted to the National Science Foundation (NSF). Should the proposal be funded, the following condition will apply: applicants who are given grants for support of their travel to ICME-8 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds. Currently, it is the intention of NSF's funding program to provide no additional funds on its other regular grants for travel to ICME-8 in 1996. However, an individual who does not receive a travel grant may use regular NSF grant funds, subject to the usual restrictions and prior approval requirements.
Thanks for you attention.
All good wishes.
