NSF Grants

US National Science Foundation support for young researchers at US institutions

Funding is anticipated from the US National Science Foundation for a block grant to support the participation of young researchers at US institutions in the XVIIth International Congress on Mathematical Physics and the Young Researchers Symposium both to be held in Aalborg, Denmark, during the period 3-11 August 2012. This grant will provide support for travel, lodging, and local expenses. Applicants must have a position (graduate student, post-doc or assistant professor) at a US institution and be not more than 5 years beyond the PhD. Preference will be given to those without other sources of funding. Co-funding from an applicant's institution is encouraged. Women and members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Deadline for applications is 15 March 2012. Announcements of awards will be made by 15 April 2012. Applications and questions should be sent to Peter Hislop at icmp2012@hotmail.com.
