Thanks to a generous donation by the Simons Foundation, the Commission for Developing Countries of the International Mathematical Union is
launching the IMU-Simons African Fellowship Program to support research visits of
mathematicians living and working in developing countries in Africa.
The grant covers travel, accommodation, visa, travel insurance and living costs up to USD 5,000 per mathematician.
The duration of the visit should be of a reasonable length of time to allow fruitful interaction.
In particular, the minimal length of a visit is one month.
Interested mathematicians must hold a valid doctoral degree and must be employed as a faculty member of a university or
equivalent institution in a developing country in Africa.
For a list of applicable countries, further requirements and the online application form please go here:
November 1, 2016 (Decisions will be made by December 15, 2016) for visits starting between in January 2017 and January 2018
January 15, 2017 (Decisions will be made by February 28, 2017) for visits starting between April 2017 and April 2018
