The Neuroscience Collaborations at the Simons Foundation are accepting applications for funding of courses or conferences in fundamental neuroscience. Courses and conferences that align with the scientific missions of our programs, the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain (SCGB), with a focus on the fields of systems and computational neuroscience, and/or the Simons Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain (SCPAB), with a focus on healthy cognitive aging, will be prioritized. We especially encourage applications for courses and conferences held and/or organized by people in regions of the world where opportunities for neuroscience courses or conferences have historically been less numerous.

Applications may be submitted by course or conference organizers within and outside of the United States nonprofit organizations; public and private institutions, such as colleges, universities, hospitals, laboratories and units of state and local government; and eligible agencies of the federal government. There are no citizenship or country requirements.

Funding levels per year, quoted in U.S. Dollars (USD), are:

*For requests of $50,000, applicants must contact by May 9, 2024 before submitting their application to obtain prior written approval from the Simons Foundation Neuroscience Collaborations.

To be eligible for funding through the 2024 RFA for the Courses and Conferences Award, the first instance of the course or conference must occur between September 1, 2024 to August 31, 2025.
