It was established through the initiative of the Millennium Science Initiative (MSI), a programme administered by the Science Initiative Group (SIG), the Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and the African Academy of Sciences (AAS).
AMMSI currently operates in collaboration with the African Academy of Sciences (AAS).
One of the main goals of the AMMSI is to strengthen mathematics learning and culture by supporting the training of postgraduate students in African institutions, through a number of mechanisms.
The International Mathematical Union (IMU), through the Developing Countries Strategy Group (DCSG), has provided funds to enable achievement of the goal indicated above.
Applications are therefore invited for the 2009 AMMSI Postgraduate Scholarships, by sub-Saharan African nationals, for Ph.D, M.Sc and Postgraduate Diploma studies in mathematics, to be undertaken at any university in Africa.
The maximum award is USD 2,000 (Two thousand US dollars).
Applicants must hold a good Bachelor’s degree for M.Sc or Postgraduate Diploma studies, or a Master’s degree for Ph.D studies.
