Collaboration Grants for Mathematicians

Funder: Simons Foundation

Due Date: January 31, 2018

Budget: $42,000

The Simons Foundation’s Mathematics and Physical Sciences division invites applications for Collaboration Grants for 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 collaboration grants to accomplished, active researchers in the United States who do not otherwise have access to funding that allows support for travel and visitors.

Basis for Awards

Awards will be based on the quality and significance of the applicant’s previous research, as outlined in the Statement of Recent Work requirement below, and on the likely impact the collaboration grant will have on future research, both for the applicant and the applicant’s graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows.

Other criteria include publication in high-quality journals, the applicant’s current and recent Ph.D. students and the applicant’s travel goals and general research activity.
