The CDC offers two scholarships schemes to support graduate studies, in a developing country, leading to an Master or PhD degree in the mathematical sciences.


The CDC grant and scholarship schemes are funded from the different sources: CDC receives an annual grant for its activities and grant schemes from the International Mathematical Union (IMU). The IMU in turn receives its financial support from IMU member countries. The IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship receives its support from a donation by the winners of the Breakthrough Prizes in Mathematics – Ian Agol, Jean Bourgain, Simon Donaldson, Maxim Kontsevich, Jacob Lurie, Terence Tao and Richard Taylor. The GRAID Program (to be launched in spring 2017) to fund graduate research assistantships in developing countries will be provided by voluntary donations from mathematicians or mathematical institutions worldwide. Additionally the CDC receives for other grant schemes support from the Niels Henrik Abel Board (Norway), the Simons Foundation in NY (USA), the Mathematical Society of Japan and the American Mathematical Society (AMS).



CDC also supports selected projects per year dedicated to mathematics education and capacity building.More information about supported projecs in the category "Mathematics Education and Capacity Building" can be found here.
