Funding Support: Established researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students are invited to apply for funding. Funding awards are typically made eight weeks before the workshop; requests received after the funding deadlines are considered only if additional funds become available. Groups underrepresented in research-intensive contexts including women, gender-expansive individuals, minorities, and mathematicians not located at research centers are welcomed and encouraged to apply.


Resources for Workshop Attendees: SLMath is pleased to be able to offer a private room for nursing parents. Childcare grants are available for researchers with children under the age of 18 (limited to US Citizens and Permanent Residents, and foreign visitors with a visa status that allows for compensation, such as a J1). See website for full details.


MSRI / SLMath 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.
