AIMS 2013-14 Applications
Applications are Now Closed
The AIMS taught programme is not a typical university programme. We look for the most talented and motivated students from across the African continent, recognising that grades are not always a good indication of potential. Taught by top international and local lecturers, the course is supported throughout by tutors who work closely with the lecturers and students. The course material is purposefully broad, allowing students to learn about a wide spectrum of mathematical topics and their applications before focusing on a single area for their research project. For a detailed synopsis on the projects, review the archive of previous years projects submitted at AIMS-South Africa archive and AIMS-Senegal archive.
AIMS provides scholarships to all students, ensuring that an inability to pay is not a barrier to enrolling on the AIMS course.
Applications can be completed on the AIMS-Next Einstein Initiative website; AIMS-NEI is the coordinating body for the network of AIMS centers. Only a single application is necessary to be considered for admission.
To stand the best chance of acceptance, students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
