Thanks to a generous donation by the winners of the Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics - Ian Agol, Jean Bourgain, Simon Donaldson, Alex Eskin, Christopher Hacon, Martin Hairer, Maxim Kontsevich, Vincent Lafforgue, Jacob Lurie, James McKernan, Terence Tao and Richard Taylor - IMU with the assistance of FIMU is opening a new call of the IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship Program to support postgraduate studies, in a developing country, leading to a PhD degree in the mathematical sciences.
The IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship offers a limited number of complete grants, with a duration of up to four years, for excellent students from developing countries.
Professional mathematicians are invited to nominate highly motivated and mathematically talented students from developing coutnries who plan to complete a doctoral degree in a developing country, including their own home country. Nominees must have a consistently good academic record and must be seriously interested in pursuing a career of research and teaching in mathematics.
For a nomination to be eligible, the country of citizenship of the student, the country of residence and the country where the studies will take place must be on the list of Developing Countries, as defined by the IMU for the period of 2019-2022.
The 2021 call will be open from February 1, 2021 to May 30, 2021. For more information, please visit this page.
