W.M. Keck Foundation
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 several factors, including questions that push the edge of the field, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge the prevailing paradigm.
Supporting pioneering discoveries in science, engineering and medical research has been our mandate from the beginning. By funding the high-risk/high-impact work of leading researchers, we are laying the groundwork for new paradigms, technologies and discoveries that will save lives, provide innovative solutions, and add to our understanding of the world. Senior, Mid and Early Career investigators are encouraged to apply.
Pre-Application Counseling: July 1 to August 15

Investigating Environmental Factors that Increase the Risk for Parkinson’s Disease
The purpose of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to investigate environmental exposures, such as chemicals or toxic emissions, that increase the risk of PD and/or influence disease progression. While there are reports linking a variety of environmental factors with risk of PD, much remains unknown regarding the identification of specific environmental factors, their role in disease, and quantification of their contributions. A better understanding of such factors could lead to efforts to reduce or prevent such exposures in order to reduce the risk of PD. Watch the informational on-demand webinar to learn more.
