Grants for Institutions

The CDC offers two grants to support institutions:

Volunteer Lecturer Program

The Volunteer Lecturer Program was established in 2008. It is designed to foster research and international cooperation between mathematicians in developing countries and the international mathematical community by providing financial assistance to universities in developing countries to host a volunteer lecturer for an intensive course. This program is partially funded by the American Mathematical Society and the Niels Henrik Abel Board (Norway).

Library Assistance Scheme

The Library Assistance Scheme matches donors of mathematical materials with libraries in universities/research institutions in developing countries where there is a need for mathematical research literature. CDC offers limited financial support for shipment costs for individual scientists or institutions wishing to donate books in the mathematical sciences to libraries in developing countries.
