Seven students have been awarded the IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship (BGF) grant to complete their PhD. BGF grants are funded by the generous donations from all the Breakthrough Prize winners. The program is the subject of an interesting article by Della Dumbaugh appeared in the September 2019 Issue of the AMS Notices. The award of full PhD grants goes to seven students from developing countries engaged in a PhD degree in the mathematical sciences in a developing country.
