Workshop Funding: Established researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students are invited to apply for funding. Funding awards are typically made eight weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadlines are considered only if additional funds become available. MSRI is pleased to be able to offer a private room for nursing mothers.


Resources for Workshop Attendees: MSRI is pleased to be able to offer a private room for nursing parents. To allow visitors to fully participate in its scientific activities, MSRI is pleased to be able to offer childcare grants to researchers with children under the age of 17. One of the objectives of MSRI’s family support program is to contribute toward MSRI’s goal of enabling the participation of women and members of other historically underrepresented groups in its programs, workshops, and summer graduate schools.


These flexible grants may be used for reimbursement of childcare expenses incurred in Berkeley, or at home, including airfare for children and support for companion caregivers or hired childcare providers in Berkeley or to cover the costs of such help at home. Please note that, because these funds are taxable, they are available only to US Citizens and Permanent Residents, and foreign visitors with a visa status that allows for compensation, such as a J1. We are deeply grateful to our Family Support donors for their generosity.


MSRI is committed to the principles of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. Students, recent PhDs, women, and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.


MSRI has been supported from its origins by the National Science Foundation, now joined by the National Security Agency, over 100 Academic Sponsor Institutions, by a range of private foundations, and by generous and farsighted individuals.
