About the Award: The IMU-Simons African Fellowship Program bolsters look into holidays for mathematicians from AFRICAN developing nations utilized in AFRICA to go to an Internationally known scientific focal point of greatness/college (WORLDWIDE) for collective research.
The program is not for any post graduate courses or post doctoral preparing yet for a LIMITED RESEARCH PERIOD. The Award takes care of TRAVEL and LIVING COSTS of African mathematicians working in Africa (Specifically originating from a developing nation, the meaning of which is dictated by the IMU for every one of its plans) amid the vacation.
Offered Since: 2016
The candidate needs to hold a legitimate doctoral degree (PhD) in Mathematics.
The African candidate must be based (work environment) in an African developing nation.
The candidate must be utilized as a mathematician in a personnel of a college or a proportional advanced education foundation.
The candidate ought to as of now have set up contact with a mathematician in the host establishment in scientific focal point of brilliance worldwide and ought to have an unequivocal research arrange together with the host, which must be submitted alongside the educational programs vitae of both mathematicians at the season of applying for this allowance. This arrangement ought to be endorsed by the host too.
The candidate ought to have been conceded an official leave from his/her home establishment which will cover the time of the visit.
The application should likewise be joined by a formal letter of welcome from the host foundation, which unmistakably determines the time of the (short) Research visit and also the degree of its money related responsibility and support. It is normal that the host establishment would at any rate offer office space, free Internet, and other essential amenities. The welcome needs to originate from the senior member of the staff for the host foundation.
The negligible length of a visit that could be positively considered would be one month. There is no maximal length yet it must be a holiday/research visit, not an association position in the host foundation (e.g. doing a post-doctoral).
Estimation of Scholarship: The grant under this plan will cover:
Travel costs from the work environment of the candidate to that of the host to the degree of economy class airfare (Public) transport (surface transport by rail or transport between the closest city where the air terminal is found and the central station of the competitor or the city/town where the host foundation is found, if fundamental)
Travel protection charges
Fundamental living expenses
Convenience cost (visitor place of the foundation or leased level if conceivable).
Most extreme four (4) Taxi charges (on accommodation of receipts) might be permitted to go between the living arrangement and the air terminal/railroad station (upon landing and takeoff).
Instructions to Apply: It is vital to experience the fundamental application prerequisites and process before applying.
