W.M. Keck Foundation – Research Program

  Grant Amount: $500,000 to $2,000,000

Information

The Foundation strives to fund endeavors that are distinctive and novel in their approach. It encourages projects that are high-risk with the potential for transformative impact. “High-risk” comprises a number of factors, including questions that push the edge of the field, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge the prevailing paradigm. In all our programs, “transformative” may mean creation of a new field of research, development of new instrumentation enabling observations not previously possible, or discovery of knowledge that challenges prevailing perspectives. In addition to the above, in the Southern California Program, transformative may also mean positioning an organization for growth and adaptability.

Research universities, medical colleges and major private independent scientific and medical research institutes are eligible to apply to the Research Program.

Exempt from federal taxation as defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be designated as:
