Mohammad A. Hamdan Award

This new award will be given for outstanding mathematical work carried out by a scientist working and living in Africa or Arab regions.

Starting from year 2020, this new award is named after TWAS’s late Vice President for the Arab Region, Prof. Hamdan.
As a Member of our Academy since 1988, Prof. Hamdan was deeply committed to the cause and objectives of TWAS and for many years he actively supported us, and held the position of TWAS Vice-President for the Arab countries on the TWAS Council.

His true commitment to the cause and mission of TWAS in sustaining scientific capacity building in the developing world was so strong that he endowed a large sum to TWAS to establish an award in his name.


The award, consisting of USD 5,000 and a certificate, will be given every two years to a mathematical scientist working and living in Africa or Arab regions. 

The award will be given for outstanding mathematical work (pure, applied, probability, statistics).

Eligible candidates are national of an African or Arab country, who have been living and working there for a minimum of two years immediately prior to their nomination.
