First Open Call for Support of Science Events and Gatherings

The Heising-Simons Foundation’s Science program is soliciting its first open call for proposals for support of meetings, workshops, conferences, summer schools, research collaboration gatherings, and other events related to astronomy, cosmology, fundamental physics, climate change science, as well as increasing the representation and retention of underrepresented groups within these areas. 

The Science program expects to fund up to $400,000 total in grants during this open call for proposals, with each grant expected to be between $20,000 and $80,000. With this open call process, the Science program hopes to form new partnerships with scientists, institutions, and communities it has not yet worked with.  

Please read the eligibility and proposal guidelines on our website. The closing date for the open call is Friday, August 30, 2024 (11:59 am PT).
