We are creating a representation for black Mathematicians
We create an excitement in the black mathematics industry and have people interested in the project
The prospect of the association will yield to the growth of graduate students becoming scholars, increase in collaborative research outputs that give solutions, interpretations to scientific problems in the community through journals and funding agencies. Then we plan to represent the concerns and the development of black mathematicians around the globe.
What we do
We act as a voice to the black mathematicians across the globe by integrating the accomplishment and exploits of black mathematicians, establish collaborative research, secure funding to help underrepresented scholars in graduate schools, and help source employment opportunities for black mathematicians.
We Find & Fund
We are in search of opportunities to help undergraduate and graduate students with scholarship opportunities; and researchers for possible research collaboration and grant opportunities. We approach institutions to find and fund scholars for equal opportunities for the underrepresented and marginalized groups.
We organize webinars and provide workshops by inviting prestigious and well-equipped researchers from different disciplines across the field of Mathematics. These webinars detail scholarship opportunities, grant writing, research skills, and workshops for undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, researchers, and lecturers in the field of Mathematics.
• Funding bodies and organizations who are interested in collaborating, workshop organizing and sponsoring prospective scholars
• Volunteers who are established experts in mathematics with mentorship experience.
Our numbers that speak
I was planning to acquire skills in Data Science with Python before BMA offered free DataCamp Training for the members. As I saw the information on BMA Telegram group, I applied for the training and I was lucky to be selected among others. I see it as an opportunity and I grabbed it immediately and utilized my potential to get trained. The training has helped me a lot to understand the fundamental skills in Data Science with Python which I'm currently using the skills acquired in my research work. The facilitators for each course were excellent and the curriculum is also superb. I am happy to say that I'm the one leading in my team among others selected for the training. I sincerely appreciate BMA executive for the opportunity given to us. Although the training is still ongoing with DataCamp because I'm aiming to be a certified Data Scientist after completion of the whole course. I hereby advise the potential learners to see it as an opportunity which will enable them to implement their skills in the digital age.
In few months after onboarding, I was able to complete python courses and took some exercises. I noticed there is a need for me to engage in a project so that I can develop the skills and practice what I learnt. I searched for GitHub repos with basic python projects, I am currently going through the projects and trying to change some lines in the code. Thank you, BMA, for this amazing opportunity.
