Simons Foundation




Mission and Model

The Simons Foundationís mission is to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics and the basic sciences. Co-founded in 1994 in New York City by Jim and Marilyn Simons, the foundation exists to support basic ó or discovery-driven ó scientific research undertaken in the pursuit of understanding the phenomena of our world.

The Simons Foundationís support of science takes two forms: We support research by making grants to individual investigators and their projects through academic institutions, and, with the launch of the Flatiron Institute in 2016, we now conduct scientific research in-house, supporting teams of top computational scientists.
