The Isaac Newton Institute is very pleased to announce the launch of the new Ramanujan Fellowships, generously funded by the Simons Foundation.

The fellowship is named after Srinivasa Ramanujan, a highly gifted Indian mathematician of the early 20th century, who was invited to Cambridge in 1914 by G H Hardy. Even though he had little formal training, he is recognised as having had a significant impact on several areas of mathematics.

The Ramanujan Fellowships are open to promising early career researchers who work in a low or middle-income country to attend an INI programme of their choice for 56 days. Applications will be reviewed by an international panel of renowned mathematicians.

Successful Ramanujan Fellows will be awarded an enhanced per diem of £25, up to £1200 towards travel to INI and accommodation. Fellows with caring responsibilities may apply for an additional allowance of up to £75 per day, which can be used to cover housing and childcare costs. They must apply for this via the Care Provision scheme.

The first round for applicants interested in joining a 2024 or 2025 programme is now open, with a deadline of Wednesday, July 31st 2024.

Please go to the Ramanujan webpage for more information on the available programmes, T&Cs and how to apply.
