ICM 2022

Kovalevskaya Grants

For updates to the information in the call for applications, see the FAQ at the bottom of this page.

Overview The Kovalevskaya Grants support the participation of early career mathematicians at the International Congress of Mathematicians 2022 (July 6–14, 2022, Saint Petersburg).

The grants cover the local expenses at the congress (including accommodation and meals). Registration fee for the ICM 2022 for the grant recipients will be waived and visa-free entry to the Russian Federation will be arranged.

The Danish National Committee for Mathematics is responsible for the selection of recipients of the Kovalevskaya Grants from Denmark as the local partner of the organizers of ICM 2022.

The grant does not cover travel costs. For the participants from Denmark, it is expected that these will be covered by the home institution of the recipient. The applicant should arrange this with his/her institution before applying.

The following candidates are invited to apply

  • PhD students in mathematics or a related field at universities in Denmark
  • Mathematicians who obtained their PhD degree not earlier than 6 years before the start of ICM 2022 (with possible extensions in case of long-term illness or parental leave), working at an institution in Denmark

Q: Can I cancel my registration for the congress in case I do not receive the Kovalevskaya Grant?

A: The results will be announced by December 1, 2021. This is expected to be well before the early registration deadline, so it should be safe to postpone the payment of the participant fee until the announcement and, if necessary, cancel the registration without making the payment.
