IMU-Net 76b: Special issue on the IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship Program
The IMU has recently launched the novel IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship
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 (Friends of the IMU)
and TWAS (The World Academy of Sciences) has launched 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 program will be administered by CDC (Commission for Developing Countries),
a commission of IMU.
Professional mathematicians are invited to nominate highly motivated and
mathematically talented students from developing countries who plan to complete
a doctoral degree in a developing country, including their own home country.
Nominees must have a consistently good academic record from the high school
level and must be seriously interested in pursuing a career of research and
teaching in mathematics.
The deadline for online nominations is 09:00 am CET on 22 June 2016. Please help
in making this initiative widely known.
