The Simons Foundation’s Division for Mathematics and the Physical Sciences invites applications for grants to mathematicians primarily for collaboration and travel. The goal of the program is to support the “mathematical marketplace” by substantially increasing collaborative contacts in the community of mathematicians working in the United States. The foundation will make a large number of grants to accomplished, active researchers who do not otherwise have access to substantial research funding that supports travel and visitors.
Award: $7,000 per year for five years
Deadline: January 31, 2013
