The HeadStart program

Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities’ Intervention ciblée en Afrique francophone, the HeadStart initiative involves recruiting top-flight francophone candidates from across the AIMS network to conduct short-term, focused research projects of six months in the mathematical sciences at the University of Ottawa.  Furthermore, the Faculty Mobility Program doubles uOttawa’s teaching efforts by providing up to four professors at AIMS-Senegal annually.
