CWM Supplementary Grants
The International Mathematical Union Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM) invites applications for supplementary grants of up to €500 to help women from developing countries or regions attend scientific events taking place from March 2017 to February 2018. The grants are intended to help women who already have funding to attend a conference or meeting or for scientific collaboration, but who need extra funds to make it possible (for example, for child care, separate accommodation, or more appropriate travel).
Applicants should write a short account of not more than two pages explaining the scientific benefit to themselves of the travel, together with brief details of funding already secured and the reason why extra funds are needed. This account together with an up-to-date CV should be sent before 28 February 2017 to Marie Françoise Ouedraogo firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to Sunsook Noh email@example.com and with the subject header CWM Supplementary Grants. If the grant is approved, a report will be required after the event has taken place. Priority will be given to early career applicants.
