The Ramanujan Prize for young mathematicians from developing countries has been awarded annually since 2005. The Prize is now funded by the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India (DST), and will be administered jointly by ICTP, the International Mathematical Union (IMU), and the DST.
The Prize winner must be less than 45 years of age on 31 December of the year of the award, and have conducted outstanding research in a developing country. Researchers working in any branch of the mathematical sciences are eligible. The Prize carries a $15,000 cash award. The winner will be invited to ICTP to receive the Prize and deliver a lecture. The Prize is usually awarded to one person, but may be shared equally among recipients who have contributed to the same body of work.
The Selection Committee will take into account not only the scientific quality of the research, but also the background of the candidate and the environment in which the work was carried out.
The Committee consists of eminent mathematicians appointed in consultation between the ICTP, the IMU and the DST.
The deadline for receipt of nominations for the 2017 Prize has passed.
Self-nominations are strongly discouraged.
