The Commission for Developing Countries invites applications for two scholarship schemes to support graduate studies, in a developing country, leading to a Master or PhD degree in the mathematical sciences.

This is an international scholarship for developing countries.

This graduate scholarships have helped provided study abroad opportunities , to great minds that look to further their academic pursuit in the field of mathematics and sciences to optain a Masters degree and PhD in mathematics.

Hence , its a scholarship for developing countries to study abroad in Germany for Masters and PhD students.

Here are the two categories of the graduate  scholarship :

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.

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.

The GRAID Program is funded by voluntary donations from mathematicians or mathematical institutions worldwide.

IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowship Program: Thanks to a generous donation by the winners of the Breakthrough Prizes in Mathematics – Ian Agol, Jean Bourgain, Simon Donaldson, Maxim Kontsevich, Jacob Lurie, Terence Tao and Richard Taylor –

the International Mathematical Union, with the assistance of FIMU and TWAS launched in 2016 a fellowship program to support postgraduate studies, in a developing country, leading to a PhD degree in the mathematical sciences.

The IMU Breakout Graduate Fellowships offer a limited number of grants for excellent students from developing countries.
