The Clay Senior Scholar

The aim of the Senior Scholar Program is to foster mathematical research and the exchange of ideas by providing support for senior mathematicians who will play a leading role as "senior scientist" in a topical program at an institute or university. Senior Scholars will be in residence throughout the program and are expected to interact extensively with the other participants.
