The Simons Foundation’s Division for Mathematics and the Physical Sciences invites applications for grants to mathematicians to stimulate collaboration in the field primarily through the funding of travel and related expenditures.
The goal of the program is to support the ‘mathematical marketplace’ by substantially increasing collaborative contacts between mathematicians. The foundation will make a large number of grants to accomplished, active researchers in the United States who do not otherwise have access to funding for research that supports travel and visitors.
Applicants must have a tenure-track or tenured position, or be a professor emeritus, at a U.S. institution of higher education. They must have a current record of active research and publication in high-quality journals and not hold any other grants of over $3,000 per year that allow for support for travel or visitors during the Collaboration Grant award period.
Applicants may apply through proposalCENTRAL beginning September 1, 2013. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2014.
