The Mathers Foundation is committed to advancing knowledge in the life sciences by sponsoring scientific research that will benefit mankind. Basic scientific research, with potential translational application, is central to this goal, and fundamental to our operating principles. Note:
Sponsor Deadline: 3/22/24
Internal Deadline: 2/22/24
Number of Applications per organization: Universities/Institutions are limited to four applications per cycle.
Funding Available: Grant budgets cannot exceed $600-750K (including indirect costs capped at 10%) over three years.
The Research Partnerships (PFI-RP) track seeks to achieve the same goals as the PFI-TT track by supporting instead complex, multi-faceted technology development projects that are typically beyond the scope of a single researcher or institution and require a multi-organizational, interdisciplinary, synergistic collaboration. A PFI-RP project requires the creation of partnerships between academic researchers and third-party organizations such as industry, non-academic research organizations, federal laboratories, public or non-profit technology transfer organizations or other universities. Such partnerships are needed to conduct use-inspired research on a stand-alone larger project toward commercialization and societal impact. In the absence of such synergistic partnership, the project’s likelihood for success would be minimal.
Sponsor Deadline: 5/7/24
Internal Deadline: 2/7/24
Number of Applications per organization: An organization may not submit more than one (1) new or resubmitted PFI-RP proposal to a deadline of this solicitation.
Funding Available: Up to $1,000,000 for 36 months

With this program solicitation, the Foundation is introducing the National Quantum Virtual Laboratory (NQVL) concept as an overarching shared infrastructure designed to facilitate the translation from basic science and engineering to the resultant technology, while at the same time emphasizing and advancing its scientific and technical value. The NQVL aims to develop and utilize use-inspired and application-oriented quantum technologies. In the process, NQVL researchers will explore quantum frontiers6, foster QISE workforce education and training, engage in outreach activities at all levels, and promote broadening participation, diversity, equity, and inclusion in QISE, thereby lowering barriers at all entry points of the research enterprise. The engagement of the entire United States (U.S.) QISE community will be necessary for this initiative to succeed, and, indeed, the project is designed to include participation from a full spectrum of organizations who have expertise to contribute. In particular, NSF recognizes that the involvement of industry partners is essential and will welcome these to be a part of the overall structure. Partnerships with other U.S. Federal agencies under the NQI umbrella are also encouraged.
Sponsor Deadline: 4/9/24 (LOI-required); 6/11/24 (Full proposal)
Internal Deadline: 3/8/24
Number of Applications per organization: Up to one (1) QSTD Pilot proposal may be submitted per Lead Organization.
Funding Available: Maximum of $1,000,000 for 12 months.
The DOE SC program in Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) hereby announces its interest in research applications to explore potentially high-impact approaches in the development and use of data reduction techniques and algorithms to facilitate more efficient analysis and use of massive data sets produced by observations, experiments and simulation.
The principal focus of this FOA is to support applied mathematics and computer science approaches that address one or more of the identified PRDs. Research proposed may involve methods primarily applicable to high-performance computing, to scientific edge computing, or anywhere scientific data must be collected or processed. Significant innovations will be required in the development of effective paradigms and approaches for realizing the full potential of data reduction for science. Proposed research should not focus only on particular data sets from specific applications, but rather on creating the body of knowledge and understanding that will inform future scientific advances. Consequently, the funding from this FOA is not intended to incrementally extend current research in the area of the proposed project. Rather, the proposed projects must reflect viable strategies toward the potential solution of challenging problems in data reduction for science. It is expected that the proposed projects will significantly benefit from the exploration of innovative ideas or from the development of unconventional approaches. Proposed approaches may include innovative research with one or more key characteristics, such as compression, reduced order models, experiment-specific triggers, filtering, and feature extraction, and may focus on cross-cutting concepts such as artificial intelligence or trust. Preference may be given to pre-applications that include reduction estimates for at least two science applications.
Sponsor Deadline: 3/19/24 (pre-application due, required); 5/7/24 (full application)
Internal Deadline: 2/19/24
Number of Applications per organization: No more than two pre-applications or applications as the lead institution. No more than one pre-application or application for each PI at the applicant institution.
Funding Available: From $150,000 per year for a project period of three years.
The DOE SC program in Basic Energy Sciences (BES) announces a re-competition of the Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) program and encourages both new and renewal applications. Applications from multi-disciplinary teams will be required to propose discovery science and use-inspired basic research that addresses priority research directions and opportunities identified by a series of BES workshop and roundtable reports. The focus of the EFRC program is on fundamental scientific research, therefore applications to this FOA must not propose applied research and technology development activities. BES is soliciting renewal applications for basic science in three topical areas: 1) Transformative manufacturing, 2) Quantum information science (QIS), and 3) Environmental management. BES is soliciting new applications for basic science in two topical areas: 1) Co-design of materials and processes to revolutionize microelectronics and/or QIS fabrication, and 2) Environmental management.
This FOA solicits new applications for EFRCs that will perform basic science to address the following two topics:
1) Co-design of materials and processes to revolutionize microelectronics and/or QIS fabrication Co-design is a paradigm that provides scientific foundations for the creation of new materials, chemical processes, or systems by addressing the ubiquitous manufacturing challenge of simultaneously satisfying multiple performance objectives. Fundamental science questions related to co-design and fabrication are discussed in the Basic Research Needs (BRN) for Transformative Manufacturing Report https://science.osti.gov/-/media/bes/pdf/reports/2020/Manufacturing_BRN_Report_Combined.pdf. New applications in this topic must satisfy the following two conditions:
2) Environmental management Fundamental science questions related to cleanup of nuclear waste are discussed in the Basic Research Needs for Environmental Management Report
New applications must be responsive to the following PRD:
Number of Applications Allowed: Applicant institutions are limited to no more than two pre-applications or applications as the lead institution.
Sponsor Deadline: February 28, 2024 (Pre-Application required); May 8, 2024 (Full Application)
Internal Deadline: February 16, 2024
Funding Available: DOE anticipates that award sizes will range from $2,000,000 per year to $4,000,000 per year. Recognizing that new centers take some time to ramp up full operations, for new awards DOE will likely award less funding in Year 1 of the four-year project period than in subsequent years.
A multi-institutional team is limited to a request of no more than $4,000,000 per year. Award ceiling and floor specified are for total costs, both direct and indirect costs.
