# AMS-Simons Research Enhancement Grants for Primarily Undergraduate Institution (PUI) Faculty

The American Mathematical Society is pleased to announce a new program to foster and support research collaboration by mathematicians employed full-time at primarily undergraduate institutions (PUI), i.e., those that do not award doctoral degrees in mathematics. With generous funding from the Simons Foundation, we expect to award at least 40 grants per year starting in 2023.

## What is the timeline for this grant?

Applications will open January 2, 2023 and close March 20, 2023. Funds will be disbursed in July 2023.

## How can someone apply?

Applications will open January 2, 2023 on Mathprograms.org. Application materials will include:

• NSF-style biographical sketch. This document should be at most two pages and include the following sections: professional preparation, appointments, products (at most five products most closely related to the proposed research), other significant products (at most five products, whether or not related to the proposed project), and synergistic activities (at most five specific activities that demonstrate the broader impact of the individual’s professional and scholarly activities). The applicant also will list current and pending support or state none in the biographical sketch.
• Summary of previous research. This summary, up to one page, should describe the applicant’s past research results.
• Research proposal. This proposal should be at most two pages describing the research goals and/or objectives and the potential for the proposed work to add new knowledge and impact the profession. Applicants also should include locations where the work will be conducted.
• Budget statement. This one-page statement should detail the anticipated expenses and their connection to the outcomes described in the research proposal.

Additional funding from the AMS also will support this opportunity for PUI faculty. Bookmark this page and revisit for updates, as applications will open January 2, 2023.
