AIMS Mathematics Master’s Scholarship Program 2021 (Fully funded)

Applications are now open for the African Institute for Mathematical Science (AIMS) structure Mathematics Master’s Scholarship Program for Africans.

The AIMS Structured Master’s Program runs over three semesters. The requisite skills phase of the AIMS course builds a standard core set of problem-solving skills: estimation, computation, approximation, modeling, data analysis, and statistics. The elective review phase allows students to apply these skills in some of the most exciting areas of science.

During the final phase of the AIMS course, students do a research project and write a scientific report under the supervision of an expert researcher on a topic of their choice. Research initiated in these projects often develops into further postgraduate research work after AIMS.
