The Simons Foundation is providing annual grants to the country’s chemists, biologists, physicists and mathematicians. These funds are meant to help sustain hundreds of Ukrainian scientists whose work was disrupted when Russia invaded their country last year.
Our grantmaking efforts focus on mathematical and physical sciences, life sciences and autism research.
Founded in 2014, the Simons Society of Fellows is a community of scholars that encourages intellectual interactions across disciplines and across research centers in the New York City area.
