The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, New Jersey, is an independent, postdoctoral research center for theoretical research and intellectual inquiry founded in 1930 by American educator Abraham Flexner, together with philanthropists Louis Bamberger and Caroline Bamberger Fuld.
The IAS is perhaps best known as the academic home of Albert Einstein, Hermann Weyl, John von Neumann and Kurt Gödel, after their immigration to the United States. Although it is close to and collaborates with Princeton University, Rutgers University, and other nearby institutions, it is independent and does not charge tuition or fees.
Flexner’s guiding principle in founding the Institute was the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake. There are no degree programs or experimental facilities at the Institute. The institute consists of four schools—Historical Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences; there is also a program in theoretical biology.
