The Simons Foundation’s Mathematics and Physical Sciences (MPS) division invites applications for the Targeted Grants to Institutes program.
Rationale: The program is intended to support established institutes or centers in the mathematics and physical sciences through funding to help strengthen contacts within the international scientific community. Our aim is to enable institutes to extend and enhance their mission; this program will not provide primary support for operating or establishing an institute. Examples of institutes and programs the foundation is currently supporting through this program can be found here.
Level and Duration of Funding: A typical targeted grant to an institute provides funding for three to five years at a level of $100,000 to $200,000 per year, which includes 20 percent in indirect costs to the institution.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
Applications may be submitted by established U.S. and foreign public and private institutes and research centers.
- Allowable expenses:
- The funding provided under the targeted grant is flexible and based on the type of support requested by the institution in the proposal.
- The program is not intended to support institutes or centers whose main purpose is to provide a focal point for research of faculty at a specific university.
