IMU/CDC has established the Graduate Research Assistantships in Developing Countries (GRAID) Program.
The Program provides research assistantships to graduate – PhD and Master – students of emerging research groups working in a developing country listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU CDC Definition of Developing Countries. Moreover, it provides modest support for emerging research groups, making it possible for them to fund their most talented students as graduate research assistants, thereby fostering the growth of a mathematics community.
Furthermore, it is assumed that the emerging research group has an ongoing collaboration with an international mathematician. The students will receive a monthly stipend to study full-time and pursue a Master or PhD graduate degree in mathematics as well as they will be supported additionally by linking their research with an international mathematician.
In addition, funding for the graduate research assistantships will be provided by voluntary donations from mathematicians or mathematical institutions worldwide.
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. Also, one Team can apply for up to 3 graduate research assistantships.
The following costs can be covered by the stipend:
