Grants to USA mathematics scholars affiliated with a higher education institution for collaborative research projects in the field of mathematics. Funding is intended to support interactions between mathematicians, costs related to hosting scholars, and general research expenses.
The goal of the program is to substantially increase collaborative contacts between accomplished, active mathematicians in the United States who do not otherwise have access to funding that could provide support for travel and visitors.
Awards will be based on the quality and significance of the applicant’s previous research 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.

The foundation will award up to 140 grants per year.
Each collaboration grant provides $8,400 per year for up to five years: $6,000 per year for collaboration, travel and research funds for the awardee; $1,000 per year in discretionary funds for the awardee’s department to enhance the research atmosphere of the department; and 20 percent ($1,400) per year in indirect costs.
The five-year grant will commence September 1, 2021.
Any funds not spent in one year of the grant may be spent in subsequent years without prior approval, but unspent funds at the end of the grant must be returned to the foundation. No-cost extension requests will be considered.
