Partnering with IPAM for the NSF PRIMES program

Posted on 3/27/23 in News

The NSF Partnerships for Research Innovation in the Mathematical Sciences (PRIMES) program seeks to boost the participation of members of groups underrepresented in the mathematical sciences through their increased involvement in research programs at the mathematical sciences institutes.  IPAM is one of six NSF math institutes seeking partnerships with individual faculty at minority serving institutions that are not currently classified as R1. The program solicitation page contains further details about eligibility and proposal preparation guidelines.

The PRIMES award is a two-year grant that begins with the PI’s participation in programs at the research institute.  During the second year of the award, the PI receives support for travel to work with collaborators etc. Faculty interested in partnering with IPAM to submit a proposal must participate in one of two long programs at IPAM during the 2023-2024 academic year.  These are “Mathematical and Computational Challenges in Quantum Computing” running September 11-December 15, 2023 or “Geometry, Statistical Mechanics, and Integrability” running March 11-June 14, 2024. 

Please email Associate Director, Selenne Bañuelos, at if you are interested in submitting a PRIMES proposal and partnering with IPAM. NSF’s full proposal target date is May 26, 2023.
