Launching Early-Career Academic Pathways in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (USA)

The Launching Early-Career Academic Pathways in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (LEAPS-MPS) is a funding program from the National Science Foundation (NSF) supporting early-career tenure-track researchers at institutions that do not traditionally receive significant amounts of NSF-MPS funding, such as some minority-serving institutions (MSIs), predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs), and Carnegie Research 2 (R2) universities. Applicants must hold a doctorate in mathematics or the physical sciences. Applicants who are from underrepresented communities in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences, including Blacks and African Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Native Pacific Islanders, are particularly encouraged to apply. The award provides 250,000 USD for 24 months (including indirect costs). Applications close on the fourth Thursday in January and the next applications close on January 26, 2023.
