Simons Foundation: Targeted Grants Institutes Program in Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science

Co-founded in 1994 in New York City by Jim and Marilyn Simons, the Simons Foundation works to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics and the basic sciences.

To advance this mission, the foundation invites applications for its Targeted Grants to Institutes program. Three grants of up to $250,000 per year for up to three years will be awarded to established institutes or centers in mathematics, theoretical physics, and theoretical computer science to strengthen contacts within the international scientific community and enable institutes to extend and enhance their missions. This program will not provide primary support for operating or establishing an institute.

Eligible applicants include established United States and foreign public and private educational and nonprofit institutes and research centers. The program is not intended to support institutes or centers whose main purpose is to provide a focal point for research of faculty at a specific university. This program will not support national labs, or the equivalent, with a primary focus on experiments.

Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
