Outreach and Education

Outreach & Education initiatives extend the Simons Foundation core mission by disseminating scientific knowledge, engaging individuals in the process of science, promoting opportunities for learning science and math concepts, and encouraging philanthropy that supports basic science research.

Recipients of Simons Foundation support include the World Science Festival Foundation, MSRI’s National Math Festival, the National Museum of Mathematics, the Simons Summer Research Fellows, and the URECA Program at Stony Brook University.
