The Simons Foundation Division for Mathematics and the Physical Sciences invites applications for the Simons Award for Graduate Students in Theoretical Computer Science program.
Theoretical computer science is unique in that graduate students working independently produce some of the best results in the field. With the Simons Award for Graduate Students, the foundation seeks to identify and support these emerging stars by providing additional support to enable them to freely pursue their research interests. The award is not intended to replace the regular academic-year support of these outstanding students.
Applicants must be graduate students who have completed two, three or four years at a U.S. or Canadian institution of higher education with a track record of outstanding results in theoretical computer science. There are no citizenship requirements.
Up to 10 awards will be made annually. Applicants must apply through proposalCENTRAL. The deadline to apply is February 12, 2014, at midnight EST.
