Funding Opportunities

The CDC is delighted to offer targeted funding programs to enable research and cooperation between mathematicians in developing countries and the rest of the world.

The objective of these programs is to enhance the mathematical capacity in developing countries to conduct research, to support local initiatives and capacity building programs.

CDC provides tailored support to mathematicians with a selection of funding opportunities for graduates, PhD students, postdocs, researchers and staff offered by the IMU or in collaboration with various mathematical institutions and organizations.
