The Research Grants from the W. M. Keck Foundation supports researchers in the USA with pioneering discoveries in Science, Engineering, and Medical Research. The Foundation funds the high-risk and high-impact work of leading researchers to lay the groundwork for new paradigms, technologies, and discoveries. The proposed research projects should:

  • focus on important and emerging areas of research
  • have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation, or methodologies
  • are innovative, distinctive, and interdisciplinary
  • demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches or challenge the prevailing paradigm
  • have the potential for transformative impact
  • fall outside the mission of public funding agencies
  • demonstrate that that W. M. Keck Foundation support is essential to the project’s success

Grants range from 1 – 5 million USD.
