Abel Visiting Scholar Program 2017 for Mathematicians from Developing Countries

posted in: Events | 0

The Niels Henrik Abel Board and the International Mathematical Union invite applications from mathematicians professionally based in developing countries to visit an international research collaborator for a period of one month.

In case the length of the visit exceeds one month, the candidate should provide evidence of financial support from the host institution to cover the living expenses beyond the first month.

The program is designed for post-doctoral mathematicians in the early stages of their professional careers. It is designed to offer the opportunity for a ‘research sabbatical,’ a necessary complement to teaching and other academic duties for mathematicians desiring to also sustain a viable research program.


– The grant can cover for one month and only for the applicant:
– Travel cost to the host institution (economy flight or equivalent)
food expenses
– Accommodation expenses
Travel health insurance,
Visa cost
– Local public transport up to USD 100 (for one month)
– The total maximum amount is USD 5,000 per grantee.
– Family expenses and any other cost cannot be covered.


Applicants must

– Hold at the time of application a PhD in Mathematics,
– Be based in a developing country at the time of application
– Hold a position in a university/ research institution
– Be in the early stages of their professional careers, more precisely: the applicants should
– Not yet be of full professorial rank but have a working contract in a university/ college
– Be under 40 years of age at the day of the application deadline.
