Overview

Investigating the fundamental laws and structures of nature through mathematics and physics.

For the current funding cycle (due date August 14, 2020), our Mathematical and Physical Sciences program strongly encourages applicants to apply only to the Small Grant program ($234,800 or less). While our system will accept Open Funding Inquiries submitted in the Large Grant program, we do not anticipate inviting any large full proposal due to our current funding constraints. In particular, we are looking for projects that would address the following goals (or a subset thereof) in creative ways.

(1) Advancing the conceptual frontiers of physics (currently we have a particular interest in theoretical and experimental work on quantum many-body systems);

(2)  Situating scientific research within a broader interdisciplinary inquiry into human thought and culture;

(3) Cultivating dynamic and demographically diverse collaborations involving multiple teams, disciplines, or institutions;

(4) Providing career continuity for young scholars (students, postdocs, and faculty members) whose physics-related research has been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
