The Clay Senior Scholar
The aim of the Clay 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. Clay Senior Scholars will be in residence throughout the program and are expected to interact extensively with the other participants.
