Organizations of the International Mathematical Union (IMU)

Dear colleagues,

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:

Deadlines:

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

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.
