IMU/CDC has recently established the Graduate Research Assistantships in Developing Countries (GRAID) program for graduate students working in a developing country. It provides modest support for emerging research groups, making it possible for them to fund their most talented students as graduate research assistants, thereby fostering the growth of a mathematics community.
