I am currently a second year mathematics undergraduate and will be undertaking a research placement (in topology/decision problems in group theory) at the maths faculty this coming summer.

My supervisor has asked that I apply for research grants. Currently I have the potential to be funded (at least partially) by the maths faculty, and also the London Mathematical Society (LMS). To be safe though I would like to apply to as many places as possible.

I have heard of large company funding research in mathematics so perhaps I should just email large companies and ask them if they are willing to help fund my project? Has anyone heard of success of this before?

Are there any other sources of funding I have not mentioned above?

Any help would be appreciated.

(I will be in England to clarify)
