Wolfram Research, Inc. announces that applications are now being accepted for the 2001-02 Mathematica Visiting Scholar Grant Program. Since 1995, this program has provided researchers, scientists, and developers the opportunity to collaborate with the Wolfram Research team on Mathematica-related projects. A list of recent visiting scholars can be found at http://www.wolfram.com/company/programs/vsgrant/vsrecipients.html. Visiting Scholar Grants are awarded to professionals working on projects that have research or commercial value and the potential to make a dramatic impact in the applicants? chosen fields. Communities that may benefit from participation in the Visiting Scholar Grant Program include engineering, finance, physics, mathematics, and other specialized groups. This year we would especially like to encourage projects that utilize webMathematica and J/Link, but we will also consider projects such as the following. * Application packages * High school and/or college courseware * Mathematica-related books and textbooks * Significant contributions to the MathSource library of Mathematica software * Other Mathematica-related projects Grant recipients are invited to spend up to eight weeks at Wolfram Research's corporate headquarters in Champaign, Illinois, to work toward the completion of their projects. During this time, visiting scholars have the opportunity to consult directly with Wolfram Research staff. Wolfram Research provides a fellowship to cover most travel expenses and offers living arrangements, office space, and the use of a Windows, Linux, or Macintosh computer during the visit. Each grant recipient also receives a current copy of the Mathematica software package on the recipient's platform of choice. The deadline for applications for the 2001-02 Mathematica Visiting Scholar Grant Program is March 1, 2001. Each recipient's visit must be completed by March 29, 2002.
