The FMJHCare program is aimed at excellent students who have difficulties in accessing mathematics training or in projecting themselves into this type of training. It was born from the observation that every year, brilliant foreign students have to give up studying mathematics in France for financial reasons or that a certain number of young women have difficulty considering a future in mathematics as possible.
The FMJH wishes to support and encourage these students at the Master level as it has always done on the basis of excellence but also at the Bachelor level. The objective is to facilitate their access to mathematics courses within the FMJH perimeter and to help them build their training project.
The FMJHCare program has three components:
Incoming mobility support: FMJHCare Scholarships
The FMJH offers scholarships to enable excellent foreign students with limited resources to join the Bachelor's or Master's degrees in mathematics within its perimeter.
Terms and conditions: This program is intended for foreign students. The priority is to help those who have not yet studied in France, but all situations will be examined with caring. It provides scholarships of 11,000 euros per year. Each laureate will also be offered to be sponsored during his/her studies by a mathematician who will act as a mentor. A jury selects the applications, according to criteria that include excellence and financial need.
Applications are made in two steps:
Step 1: Sponsorship by a faculty member within the perimeter of the FMJH. The faculty member sponsors the student by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail must include the student's name, a contact e-mail address, a notice justifying the application and, if applicable, the name of a local referent.
Step 2: Student application. In a second step, the sponsored students will be contacted to complete their application. They will have to provide their academic file, a letter from a local referee justifying the application (excellence of the student and financial need) as well as a letter of motivation. Students are invited to explain their situation in this letter and to take particular care to describe their interest in a mathematics education.
First call 2023: Colleagues wishing to sponsor a student are invited to do so now and until March 10, 2023 deadline, the laureates will be notified by April 30, 2023 at the latest. This early call is open to students from all backgrounds. The early date is in particular motivated by the concern to give a quick answer to students wishing to be hosted because of the war in Ukraine. Note that for these students, the study project can be realized not only in an institution of the FMJH perimeter but also in an institution of Paris-Center located in the perimeter of the FSMP. The FMJH has an agreement with the FSMP that will allow the winners of a scholarship to study in Paris-Center to be followed and supported by the FSMP.
Second call 2023: It will be opened on June 1st, 2023.
Outgoing mobility support : MathTechCare Fellowships and ad hoc support
- MathTechCare Scholarships
The MathTech gap year is an opportunity for the mathematics students of the perimeter. Following the observation that, in certain situations, these months of gap year cause financial difficulties, the FMJH offers support grants to the MathTech program laureates concerned.
Terms and conditions: This program is intended for MathTech program graduates for whom the months of gap year cause financial difficulties (suspension of a grant following the gap year, etc.). These grants amount to 1,000 euros per month of gap year. A jury will select the applications according to the student's academic record and financial situation.
Applications: The student must have indicated at the time of application to the MathTech program that he/she wishes to apply for a MathTechCare scholarship. If they are successful in the gap year program, they will be contacted to complete their scholarship application. The student will then have to justify the reason why the fact of doing these months of gap year changes his/her financial situation.
- Temporary support for outgoing mobility
The FMJH offers occasional support for master's students who wish to carry out a short research stay outside the perimeter of the FMJH, as part of their curriculum.
Terms and conditions: This program is intended for students who would not be able to go without this assistance and who cannot obtain funding elsewhere. The funding requested must be justified and may not exceed 500 euros per month for a maximum of 3 months. The research trip must be an integral part of the student's training (research project associated with a course, for example). The financing of internships is excluded (necessarily financed by the host institution).
Applications: Applications are made on an ad hoc basis by the heads of the training tracks. They inform us of students in financial difficulty for an outgoing mobility, justifying both the level of the student and the interest of the research stay in the student's training by writing to the address: email@example.com.
The student will then be contacted by the FMJH in order to specify and justify his/her needs. A jury will decide on the request.
Sponsorship: Mathematics in the feminine plural
The FMJH wishes to support the implementation of mentorship systems for young women studying in L3 mathematics within its perimeter. Following the example of the Maryam Mirzakhani Junior Prize, the objective is that each female student who wishes to do so be proposed a mentor in order to help her build her project. We consider that the year of L3 is a pivotal year, in which it is important that students are accompanied and encouraged to build and imagine their future.
Terms and conditions: This program is aimed at those in charge of L3 mathematics courses within the FMJH perimeter. We propose to take charge of the hours of discharge for the person in charge of the organization of the mentorship system, as well as for the mentors.
Applications: The heads of the training tracks are invited to send a request for financial support by email.
The request must contain an estimate of the number of students concerned as well as the number of hours of discharge requested per mentored student (2h ed.TD maximum).
Call for applications 2023: Emails have to be sent before June 20, 2023 midnight to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
