International Grants


Support for Mathematics in Africa

The Society currently provides support for mathematics in Africa under two headings: 

  • AMMSI - African Mathematics Millennium Science Initiative

With the support of the London Mathematical Society, AMMSI awards grants for conferences in Africa organised, or supported, by AMMSI. 

AMMSI is building mathematical infrastructure and networking in Africa, and offers graduate scholarships and conference support for the benefit of advanced students and young researchers in the mathematical sciences.

The conference grants must be used to cover the travel costs of postgraduate students, with mathematics degrees. Applications for the scholarships and conference support must be made by an institution or the main conference organiser. AMMSI also awards a prize annually to mathematicians in Africa who have made outstanding contributions to mathematics or its applications. 

More details and application forms can be obtained from or from:
