Description:
The Joan and Joseph Birman Fellowship for Women Scholars is a mid-career research fellowship specially designed to fit the unique needs of women. The fellowships are open only to women. The fellowship seeks to address the paucity of women at the highest levels of research in mathematics by giving exceptionally talented women extra research support during their mid-career years.

The most likely awardee is a mid-career woman, based at a U.S. academic institution, with a well-established research record in a core area of mathematics. The fellowship will be directed toward those for whom the award will make a real difference in the development of their research career. Candidates must have a carefully thought-through research plan for the fellowship period. Special circumstances (such as time taken off for care of children or other family members) may be taken into consideration in making the award. The fellowship can be used to provide additional time for research of the awardee, or opportunities to work with collaborators. This may include, but is not limited to, course buy-outs, travel money, childcare support, or support to attend special research programs. Note that no overhead costs will be covered by this grant.

The award is expected to be in the amount of $50,000.
