AIMS Small Research Grants

AIMS periodically makes available small research grants for projects that can be carried out in a period of less than 24 months. These projects may include specific research within the mathematical sciences and its applications, industry-related activities including internships and exchange visits. Projects must align with the vision of AIMS, must be possible to complete with limited resources, and must have measurable benefits and impact.

AIMS Alumni Small Research Grants

Many AIMS students and alumni are interested in conducting research and advancing their research careers. Additionally, some senior AIMS alumni are interested in supervision or co-supervision of students but lack sufficient funds to support the realization of research projects. Through the generous support of Canada’s IDRC, limited funds have been made available to support AIMS alumni interested or involved in interdisciplinary mathematical science research and its applications, including industry research internships. Applications are welcome throughout the year and reviewed bi-annually (July and February). AIMS alumni and current AIMS students (aspiring to graduate before the end of June or December), interested in mathematical science research and its applications, mathematical sciences research with potential future applications or industry research internships are encouraged to apply.

All awards are highly competitive and funding decisions are based on:

  • Scientific merit of the project.
  • Potential benefit and broad impact of the project on Africa’s development.
  • Applicant’s leadership potential and passion for Africa’s development.
