Individual grants

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

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
