The IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship Program

The IMU is today (22 Apr 2016) launching the novel IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship Program.

Thanks to a generous donation by the winners of the Breakthrough Prizes in Mathematics – Ian Agol, Simon Donaldson, Maxim Kontsevich, Jacob Lurie, Terence Tao and Richard Taylor – IMU with the assistance of FIMU and TWAS is today launching a fellowship program to support postgraduate studies in a developing country, leading to a PhD degree in the mathematical sciences. The IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowships will offer a limited number of grants for excellent students from developing countries.

The deadline for nominations is 09:00 am CET on 22 June 2016.   

Please help us in making this initiative widely known.

The 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF)

The 4th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), see www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org,  will take place in Heidelberg, Germany during September 18–23, 2016. At HLF all winners of the Fields Medal, the Abel Prize, the Alan Turing Award and the Nevanlinna Medal are invited to attend. In addition, young and talented computer scientists and mathematicians are invited to apply for participation. The three previous HLFs have been an exceptional success. The HLF serves as a great platform for interaction between the masters in the fields of mathematics and computer science and young talents.

Applications for participation at the 4th HLF are open in three categories: Undergraduate, Graduate PhD, and PostDoc. See the webpage www.application.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org for the online application form and further information.
