About Us

The Mathematics and Physical Sciences (MPS) division, established in 2010, supports research in mathematics, theoretical physics and theoretical computer science, by providing funding for individuals, institutions, and science infrastructure.

Programs that support individuals include theSimons Investigators计划,该计划provides long-term research funding to outstanding scientists, theSimons Fellows计划,该计划enables faculty to extend sabbaticals from one academic term to a full year, and theCollaboration Grants for Mathematicians, which provides funding for travel and visitors to mathematicians without other significant grant support. The foundation’sTargeted Grants to Institutesprogram enables established institutions to extend their mission in creative new ways and, also supports theSimons Institute for the Theory of Computingat the University of California, Berkeley. TheSimons Collaborations in MPSprogram, started in 2014, funds large scale, goal-driven projects that enable scientists to work together to address fundamental questions of major scientific importance.
