The Targeted Grants to Institutes from the Simons Foundation support established institutes or centers in mathematics, theoretical physics and theoretical computer science through funding to help strengthen contacts within the international scientific community. Applications may be submitted by established U.S. and foreign public and private educational and nonprofit institutes and research centers. This program enables institutes to extend and enhance their missions; this program will not provide primary support for operating or establishing an institute. The funding provided is flexible and based on the type of support requested by the institution in the proposal. The Targeted Grants to Institutes program provides funding for up to three years and up to $250,000 per year, which includes up to 20 percent of direct costs per year in indirect costs to the institution.
Applications are due on September 20, 2023.
