International Mathematical Union – Breakout Graduate Fellowship Program 2021

Deadline: 31 May 2021

Open to: excellent students from developing countries

Benefits: costs up to USD $10,000 per year can be covered


The International Mathematical Union, with the assistance of FIMU, maintains 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 offers a limited number of grants for excellent students from developing countries. Professional mathematicians are invited to nominate highly motivated and mathematically talented students from developing countries 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.

It is the hope of the donors, the IMU and FIMU that the fellowship helps educate the next generation of mathematicians and hopefully results in extended benefits to the home countries of those chosen for the fellowships.





The fellowship can cover the entire period of the doctoral program up to four years of the student. The following costs up to a maximum of USD $10,000 per year can be covered by the grant.
