Applications for Travel Grants to ICME-9 Are Available

The Ninth International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME 9) is
scheduled for 2000 in Makuhari, Japan, 30 July to 6 August. Attending an
ICME is an opportunity that comes along only once every four years, and to
help make it possible for U.S. mathematics educators to attend, the
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has applied to the
National Science Foundation (NSF) for travel funds. If granted, the funds
can be used by mathematics teachers, mathematicians, and mathematics
educators to supplement travel expenses to ICME-9. There are, however,
restrictions on the use of the travel funds. The grants may be used to
support air transportation on American carriers only, hotel
accommodations, meal costs, and conference registration. It is important
to note that travel grant awardees under this program may not use other
NSF funds to supplement international travel, that is, airfare to Japan,
or subsistence at ICME-9.

In addition to applying for an ICME-9 travel grant, applicants may apply
for participation in an eight-day Post-ICME-9 Seminar Tour to visit with
counterparts in Chiba and Yamagata. These awardees may or may not be NCTM
ICME-9 travel grant awardees. For this Seminar Tour, the NSF will fund per
diem travel, lodging, and subsistence expenses. A Post-ICME-9 Seminar-Tour
awardee who does not receive an NCTM ICME-9 travel grant may use other NSF
funds to support travel to ICME-9. Some of the Post-ICME-9 Seminar Tour
awardees will be invited and funded to make a presentation at the
Presidential Awardee Event in Washington, DC, in June 2001.

A Selection Committee comprised of individuals representing the NCTM, the
Mathematical Association of America, the American Mathematical Association
of Two-Year Colleges, the Mathematical Sciences Education Board, and the
U.S. National Commission on Mathematics Instruction, will review the
applications and award the grants both for the ICME-9 Travel and for the
Post-ICME-9 Seminar Tour. Elementary, middle, and high school teachers are
strongly encouraged to apply.

The travel grant application and selection criteria are available from the
NCTM, Department E, 1906 Association Drive, Reston, VA 20191-1593;
telephone 703.620.9840 extension 2112; from the NCTM Fax-on-demand at
800.220.8483 (follow the voice prompts and select option 2, enter document
525; when prompted enter the receiving fax number and the system calls
your fax machine and delivers your document); or from the NCTM Webpage at
.

The application deadline is 1 November 1999. Notifications will be made by
15 December 1999.
