The Program provides research assistantships to graduate – PhD and Master – students of emerging research groups working in a developing country. It provides modest support for emerging research groups, making it possible for them to fund their most talented students as graduate research assistants, thereby fostering the growth of a mathematics community.
It is assumed that the emerging research group has an ongoing collaboration with an international mathematician. The students will receive a monthly stipend to study full-time and pursue a Master or PhD graduate degree in mathematics and they will be supported additionally by linking their research with an international mathematician.
The amount of the stipend per graduate research assistant should not exceed USD 3,500 per year. The exact amount will be decided by the GRAID Committee on a case-by-case basis depending on the local cost of living. One Team can apply for up to 3 graduate research assistantships.
The following costs can be covered by the stipend:
- Accommodation expenses of the graduate research assistant
- Basic living expenses
We invite applications from Teams consisting of:
- The Principal Investigator (PI) plus his or her research group. The Principal Investigator should be a university professor in mathematics holding a PhD and live and work in a university or research center in a developing country and who is already training mathematics Master’s or PhD students, and who is part of a research group.
- The International Partner. The International Partner should be a mathematician working in a university or research center not based in any of the countries listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU CDC Definition of Developing Countries.
DEADLINE: March 15 2018
