Financial support

Funding from NSF to support the participation of junior US based participants to the Thematic Program workshops and school is available.

To qualify, candidates should be affiliated with a US institution in Fall 2018, and be a student or postdoc. Non-tenured faculty without their own NSF grant are also eligible.

Interested candidates should apply to the lead organizer of the workshop they would like to attend (see the list below).

An application should include the following:

  • 1. A cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest in the workshop. Applicants may also indicate their interest in extending their stay by a few days before or after the workshop to work with one of the long-term participants in the thematic program.
  • 2. Curriculum Vitae, including a list of publications.
  • 3. Brief (1 page) description of the applicant’s research.
  • 4. Students and postdocs should list a senior scientist familiar with their work as a reference.

Interested candidates can apply to more than one of the workshops and awards for more than one workshop will be considered. Applications will be accepted until the money runs out.
