The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Fundamental Physics Innovation Awards


Convening Awards


The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Convening Awards support small scientific meetings to promote collaboration and enable a number of individuals to gather and have focused discussions and presentations.

Each year, we will fund one grant up to $75,000 and two additional grants up to $25,000 to support scientific meetings.

Applications may be submitted any time throughout the year but are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Review Cycle Deadlines: March 15, July 15, November 22
