International Grants


Support for Mathematics in Africa

The Society currently provides support for mathematics in Africa under two headings: 

  • AMMSI - African Mathematics Millennium Science Initiative

The Society awards grants for conferences in Africa organised, or supported, by AMMSI.

AMMSI is building mathematical infrastructure and networking in sub-Saharan Africa, and offers graduate assistantships, visiting lectureships, and conference support for the benefit of advanced students and young researchers in the mathematical sciences.

Grants must be used to cover the travel costs of postgraduate students, with mathematics degrees, to enable them to attend the conference.  Applications must be made by an institution or organization and application forms may be obtained from:
