" The Simons Foundation Division for Mathematics and the Physical Sciences invites applications for the Simons Fellows Programs in both Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. The Fellows Programs provide funds to faculty for up to a semester long research leave from classroom teaching and administrative obligations. Such leaves can increase creativity and provide intellectual stimulation. The goal of the Simons Fellows Program is to make it easier to take such leaves, or to extend sabbatical leaves by an extra half year. "
Deadline: September 30, 2015

" Faculty members of IMA Participating Institutions are invited to submit proposals for the IMA Participating Institution Conferences. Conferences are held at the PI and must take place during the period from May through December. Proposals need only be a few pages in length. Awards of up to $5000 each are made by a committee consisting of PI Chairs and are announced in early February. Often these awards serve as effective seed money to generate further support from other funding sources.
In addition, PI faculty, postdocs, and graduate students are eligible to apply for travel funds to attend PI conferences. For more information about this and other PI benefits, please refer to the PI Membership page. "
