Call for Nominations

The Clay Mathematics Institute calls for nominations for its competition for the 2019 Clay Research Fellowships. The primary selection criteria for the Fellowship are the exceptional quality of the candidate's research and the candidate's promise to become a mathematical leader.  All Fellows are recent PhDs, and most are selected as they complete their thesis work. Nominations close November 16, 2018.
