The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Lectureship Awards support seminars that broaden awareness of existing or proposed searches for new physics using novel cost-effective probes, and of new theoretical ideas that could impact where and how such probes search for new physics.
We will fund up to 12 grants a year to support 2-3 day visits. Funding can be requested up to $2,000.
Applications may be submitted any time throughout the year but are reviewed on a rolling basis.
