Application Deadline: March 15, 2020.

IMU/CDC established in 2017 the 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 of Developing Countries, making it possible for them to fund their most talented students to study full-time as graduate research assistants and pursue a Master or PhD graduate degree in mathematics, thereby fostering the growth of a mathematics community.

It is assumed that the emerging research group has an ongoing collaboration with an international mathematician. Applications must be made by a Team consisting of a Principal Investigator plus his or her research group and an International Partner. The Principal Investigator should be a university professor in mathematics holding a PhD, working at a university or research centre in a developing country listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU Definition and the International Partner should be a mathematician working at a university or research centre not based in any of the countries listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU Definition.
 
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.

Amount of Support

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

Duration of the Support

For PhD students the stipend will typically cover 4 years depending on satisfactory progress based on annual reports. Extensions for up to 6 months will be decided at the discretion of the GRAID Committee.

Master students will typically be funded for 1 year. Extensions for up to 6 months will be decided at the discretion of the GRAID Committee.
