The “EMALCA 2019” conference was held at the University of Costa Rica, San Pedro, Costa Rica, during the period 22 July – 02 August, 2019. EMALCA 2019 was a school from the UMALCA (Mathematical Union of Latin America and the Caribbean). The EMALCA targeted an audience of (under)graduate regional students, coming from Central America and the Caribbean, as well as other Latino-American countries. All the speakers were originally from Latino-America.

Three students have been awarded a BGF grant to complete their PhD. BGF grants are funded by the generous donations from all the Breakthrough Prize winners. The program is the subject of an interesting article by Della Dumbaugh appeared in the September Issue of the AMS Notices. The award of full PhD grants goes to three students from developing countries engaged in a PhD degree in the mathematical sciences in a developing country.
