Simons Foundation Invites Applications for Collaboration Grants for Mathematicians

The Simons Foundation is inviting applications for its Collaboration Grants for Mathematicians program.

Through the program, grants of $8,400 per year for up to five years will be awarded to increase collaborative contacts between accomplished, active mathematicians in the United States who do not otherwise have access to funding that allows support for travel or the hosting of visitors. Awards will be based on the quality and significance of the applicant’s previous research and on the likely impact the grant will have on future research, both for the applicant and the applicant’s graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows. Of the award, $6,000 a year is designated for collaboration, travel, and research funds for the awardee; $1,000 a year is designated for the awardee’s department to enhance the research atmosphere of the department; and 20 percent ($1,400) is designated for indirect costs. The foundation awards up to a hundred and forty grants a year.

To be eligible, applicants must have a PhD degree and hold a tenure-track or tenured position with a full-time appointment in a mathematics department with a PhD- granting program at an institution in the United States; have a current record of active research and publication in high-quality journals; and not currently hold any other external PI or co-PI grants with an end date after September 1, 2020. There are no citizenship requirements.

See the Simons Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
