Community Grant Program: Eligibility Guidelines and Application

Funding decisions are based on available resources and the degree to which proposals meet the MathWorks Community Grant Program criteria. While we appreciate the diverse interest in our Community Grant Program, we receive many more proposals than we are able to support each year.
