Category Call for proposal
Aim: The program is intended to support high-risk theoretical mathematics, physics and computer science projects of exceptional promise and scientific importance on a case-by-case basis.

Funding: The Targeted Grant in MPS program provides funding for up to five years. The funding level and duration is flexible and should be appropriate based on the type of support requested in the proposal. There is no recommended or assumed funding level for this program.

Duration: Up to 5 years

Eligibility: Applications may be submitted by established U.S. and foreign public and private educational institutions and stand-alone research centers. PIs and co-Investigators must have a Ph.D. and a tenure-track or tenured position at said institutions or centers at the time of application. There are no citizenship or department requirements for PIs. Funding to U.S. national labs or salary support of scientists employed at these labs is not allowed. Scientists employed at national labs may be non-funded participants in a proposal/project and funding may be used to support travel or local expenses related to the participation of the lab-based scientist in activities related to the project.

Application: Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) through proposalCENTRAL (https://proposalcentral.altum.com/default.asp).

Applicants will be notified of a decision within two months of the LOI submission.
Please note that the volume of interest in this program is such that the foundation is not able to provide advance guidance on potential proposals. The foundation uses the LOI stage to assess suitability and novelty. The foundation recommends submitting an LOI if an applicant believes his/her research meets the criteria outlined in the RFA.

Deadline: The deadline is rolling and an LOI can be submitted at any time.
