Abel Visiting Scholar Program 2025 | Fully Funded

Abel Visiting Scholar Program 2025 is a unique program for scholars of the developing world to visit an international research collaborator for one month on a fully funded basis.

The Abel Visiting Scholarship Program, sponsored by the prestigious Abel Prize in Mathematics and managed by the International Mathematical Union’s Commission for Developing Countries, is open to scholars worldwide. This fully funded initiative enables scholars to advance their post-doctoral research internationally, with three grants available annually for periods of up to one year each. Qualified scholars under the Abel Prize Scholars program can apply thrice within a calendar year, potentially securing this fully funded opportunity for a month each time.

The research scholarship program targets early-career post-doctoral mathematicians, offering them a valuable “research sabbatical” opportunity. This sabbatical is crucial for sustaining a robust research program alongside teaching and other academic responsibilities. The scarcity of fully funded opportunities for mathematicians heightens the appeal and anticipation surrounding this program.

The Commission for Developing Countries (CDC), in collaboration with the International Mathematical Union, aims to address the financial challenges faced by mathematicians in the research realm. CDC recognizes the untapped potential in Mathematics within the developing world and annually provides grants to support mathematicians’ research abroad at no cost. This fully funded research program for Post-Docs not only facilitates critical research but also fosters an international network that would otherwise be difficult to establish. Missing out on this exceptional international opportunity is simply not an option.


  • Travel Costs: The organization will pay for the economy class airfare from the applicant’s work to the host’s location.
  • (Public) Transport: The organization will pay for the rail or bus transport between the airport and the candidate’s headquarters or host institution. Up to four taxi fares (with receipts) can be covered for travel between home and the airport/railway station.
  • Hotel Stay: If needed, the grant can cover one night each for both arrival and departure.
  • Visa Fees and Travel Insurance Charges: The grant can cover visa fees and travel insurance.
  • Basic Living Cost: A daily allowance based on living costs. If meals are included in accommodation, the daily amount will be reduced.
  • Accommodation Cost: The grant can cover accommodation expenses in the host country. If no guesthouse or rented flat is available, a hotel stay (up to 4 weeks) is allowed. Longer stays require renting a suitable apartment or guesthouse.

Important: Keep all invoices for travel, visa, insurance, accommodation, and taxi receipts. Send them by regular mail to the CDC/IMU Secretariat.

Note: If you travel during public holidays or when the host institution is closed, basic living costs may not be provided during that period, but accommodation costs can be covered.
