IMU-CDC encourages applications from institutions in developing countries to the VLP and the Virtual VLP by March 15, 2023, for courses to be held between July 1, 2023, and July 1, 2025.
The IMU-CDC Volunteer Lecturer Program is a program to foster international cooperation by offering financial assistance to universities in developing countries to host a volunteer lecturer for a 3-4-week intensive course. The strand Virtual Volunteer Lecturer Program (VVLP) aims to support lectures to take place remotely. In the case of lectures developed partially online and partially in-person, the host institution has to apply to the VLP.
Funding can cover the expenses of the Volunteer Lecturer up to €4,400 in the case of in-person teaching. Additionally, in both cases, the grant can support preparation of course material (printing, photocopying, books) up to €1,000 and possible expenses for the acquisition of material or use of services to conduct lectures entirely or partially in the online format up to €2,000.
The course given by the volunteer should be part of a regular mathematics undergraduate or master’s degree program at the hosting university, in subjects where the applicant university could have a lack of expertise. Only host institutions can apply for the grant in the VLP. This program is partially funded by the American Mathematical Society and the Niels Henrik Abel Board.
