The London Mathematical Society (LMS) and the International Mathematical Union (IMU) in association with the African Mathematics Millennium Science Initiative (AMMSI) are seeking applications for grants to support mathematics and its teaching in universities in Africa. Four mentoring partnerships are to be awarded, each for a duration of two years.
The MARM awards will focus on building infrastructure and networking in mathematics in Africa. They offer postgraduate scholarships, visiting lectureships and conference support for the benefit of advanced students and young researchers in the mathematical sciences, helping to improve research and graduate education in the longer term.
The MARM programme will support mentoring relationships between mathematicians in countries with a strong mathematical infrastructure and their African colleagues, together with their students.
Deadline for Applications: October 31, 2013.
