Simons Foundation Inviting Applications for Collaboration Grants for Mathematicians

The Simons Foundation is inviting applications for its Collaboration Grants for Mathematicians, which are designed to stimulate collaboration in the field of mathematics by substantially increasing collaborative contacts among mathematicians.

To that end, the foundation will make a large number of collaboration grants to accomplished, active researchers in the United States who do not otherwise have access to funding that supports travel and visitors.

Each grant provides $8,400 per year over five years: $6,000 per year for collaboration, travel, and research expenses for the awardee; $1,000 per year in discretionary funds for the grant recipient’s department; and $1,400 per year in indirect costs to the grant recipient’s institution.

To be eligible for a grant, applicants must have a Ph.D. and tenure-track/tenured position or be a professor emeritus at a U.S. institution of higher education; have a current record of active research and publication in high-quality journals; and not hold any other external grants of over $3,000 per year that allow for support for travel or visitors during the collaboration grant award period. There are no citizenship requirements. Individuals at for-profit organizations may not apply.
