Graduate Scholarships

The CDC offers two scholarship schemes to support graduate studies, in a developing country, leading to an Master or PhD degree in the mathematical sciences.

Graduate Research Assistantships in Developing Countries (GRAID) Program.

The Program provides modest support for emerging research groups, working in a developing country listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU Definition, making it possible for them to fund their most talented students to study full-time and pursue a Master or PhD graduate degree in mathematics. We invite applications from Teams consisting of a Principal Investigator plus his or her research group and an International Partner. The GRAID Program is funded by voluntary donations from mathematicians or mathematical institutions worldwide.

IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship Program 

Thanks to a generous donation by all the winners of the Breakthrough Prizes in Mathematics the International Mathematical Union, with the assistance of FIMU launched in 2016 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 offer a limited number of grants for excellent students from developing countries.
