The AMMSI-Phillip Griffiths Prize is awarded annually to an African mathematician, living in Africa...
To nurture the next generation of African mathematicians and mathematical leadership.
GOALS OF AMMSI
- To support research in mathematics and its applications (Research).
- To strengthen the teaching and learning of mathematics and its applications (Training and Education).
- To enhance capacity in mathematics through linkages and networks (Linkages and Networking).
- To raise general awareness in mathematics (Outreach and Public Education).
- To enhance the use of ICT in the teaching and learning of mathematics (ICT).
AMMSI will award a number of partial scholarships, each not exceeding USD 1,000. The scholarships...

Training & Education
Research is essential for discovery of knowledge and the application of the findings for the benefit of society. It is rare for faculty members in Africa to have sufficient funds, or time from teaching and administrative duties, to perform their own research.
One of the highest priorities of the AMMSI is to provide the opportunity to do so and, where appropriate, to support demonstrations of the application of mathematical work to societal needs.
Linkages & Networks
In Africa, the practice and teaching of mathematics are gravely hampered by the relative isolation of mathematicians from one another. This isolation is largely a function of the small population of mathematicians and the large distances between them.
The AMMSI intends to support linkages, networks, and movement of mathematicians that can foster more collaborative activities and, to some extent, combat the relative isolation of mathematicians.
