(CLOSED) Limited Submission: W. M. Keck Foundation Research Program Friday, April 27, 2018 - The Research Program sponsored by the W. M. Keck Foundation seeks to benefit humanity by supporting projects in two specific areas: (1) Medical Research and (2) Science and Engineering. Successful projects are distinctive and novel in their approach, question the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in their field. As such, they are typically high-risk, high-reward projects that other funding agencies have shied away from (Keck values proposal reviews that demonstrate this point). Past grants have been awarded to major universities, independent research institutions, and medical schools to support pioneering biological and physical science research and engineering, including the development of promising new technologies, instrumentation or methodologies. Historically, grants range from $500,000 to $5 million and are typically $2 million or less.
