Call for Donations - Library Assistance Scheme

IMU-CDC is calling for donations to the Library Assistance Scheme!

The IMU- CDC 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 financial support for shipment costs for individual scientists or institutions wishing to donate books in the mathematical sciences to libraries in developing countries. Please note that donors have to arrange the shipment independently.

New Call - Graduate Assistantships in Developing Countries (GRAID)

The IMU invites application to the new call of the GRAID Program!

GRAID Program provides modest support for emerging research groups, working in a developing country listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU Definition, to fund their most talented students to study full-time and pursue a Master or PhD graduate degree in mathematics.

New Call - Project Support Program

IMU CDC invites applications to the new call of the Project Support Program!

This program supports higher education and capacity building projects as well as local initiatives in mathematics and mathematical education. These projects can be international, regional or local initiatives in developing countries as defined by IMU for the period 2019-2022.

Please note that research projects are not eligible!
Projects financed in the past years can be consulted on the website of the program.

Key information:

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.
