ICERM LEADS $8M RESEARCH COLLABORATION
The Simons Foundation announced a new Simons Collaboration - Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory and Computation - which grew directly out of ICERM's Fall 2015 ICERM program "Computational Aspects of the Langlands Program".
ICERM WINS SIMONS FOUNDATION GRANT
Expanding institute's research programming
The grant, totaling $982,000, will augment ICERM's primary funding from the National Science Foundation. ICERM will use the additional funding to improve financial support for the academic leaders of the institute's semester-long programs and workshops.
MICROSOFT RESEARCH GIFT
Inspiring girls to love math
ICERM recently received a generous gift of $50,000 from Microsoft Research. Part of this gift will be used to fund and expand our GirlsGetMath program. We are very grateful to Microsoft Research for their continued support.

ICERM's annual sponsorship fee is allocated for support of an institution's participation in ICERM's programs and events. Up to 200% of the balance of sponsor funds may be applied to support the travel of graduate students to our programs. Sponsor institutions also receive priority status for support at ICERM events and programs.
