NOTICE: Mathematical Sciences Program is soliciting proposals for Conferences, Workshops, Special Situations, and Research Experiences for Undergraduates. Regrettably, we are still unable to fund proposals for new Young Investigator Grants or Standard Grants for budgetary reasons. Details about which documents need to be included in proposals and directions about how to submit a proposal are given below. Please email us with questions.

Mathematical Sciences Program (MSP)

 

About the Program

Established in 1987, NSA’s Mathematical Sciences Program (MSP) offers grant funding for eligible faculty members to support mathematics in the United States. This mutually beneficial programs helps the U.S. maintain a vigorous academic mathematics community. To obtain additional information about MSP, such as selection criteria, proposal preparation, grant descriptions, or proposal ideas, please call (443) 634-4304 or email us.

Mathematics Research Grants

NSA regrets we are unable to fund proposals for new Young Investigator Grants or Standard Grants this year because of budget constraints.

Conferences, Workshops & Special Situation Proposals

The MSP supports conferences and workshops in five subject areas: Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, Number Theory, Probability and Statistics. The award for conferences and workshops will not exceed $25,000 and, to avoid endorsement or the appearance thereof, approaches to cryptography proposals will not be accepted. The Special Situation category is for infrastructure development projects and for events that do not fall within the typical research conference format. Principal investigators and other personnel receiving support on NSA grants (including students, speakers and other participants) must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Contact us for questions or submit proposals from September 1 through October 15, 11:59 PM ET.

Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) Grants

The MSP supports research experiences for undergraduate programs in any area of mathematics or computer science with exception of those related to cryptography to avoid endorsement or the appearance thereof. NSA is especially interested in supporting efforts that increase broader participation in the mathematical sciences; promote wide dissemination of mathematics; and promote the training of undergraduates and graduate students. Beneficiaries of these grants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Contact us for questions or submit proposals from September 1 through October 15, 11:59 PM ET.
