Sponsors of all types are increasingly limiting the number of submissions an organization may make to any given program. This helps the sponsor manage workflow, but places an additional responsibility on the submitting organization. The articles below describe processes for the internal review and approval of certain limited submission programs in which RIT participates. For programs not described below, please use the Intent to Submit Form.
Limited Submission Funding Opportunities
Focus Area: Sir John Templeton stipulated that most of the foundation's resources would be devoted to research about "the basic forces, concepts, and realities" governing the universe and humankind's place in the universe. These include a range of fundamental scientific notions, including complexity, emergence, evolution, infinity, and time. In the moral and spiritual sphere, it extends to such basic phenomena as altruism, creativity, free will, generosity, gratitude, intellect, love, prayer, and purpose.
Focus Area: 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.
