Research grants

The complex program of research grants of the "BASIS" Foundation is aimed at supporting active scientists who conduct theoretical research in the field of fundamental mathematics.

First of all, the program is aimed at supporting students, graduate students and young scientists who conduct research under the guidance of leading scientists working at the highest international level.

The program includes the following grant competitions:
Competition Aims Applicant requirements
Leader
  • Offer an opportunity for talented young scientists to pursue their research under the supervision of leading scientists, performing at the highest international level;
  • Contribute to the development of the existing research teams of the internationally competitive level as well as the emergence of the new ones.
