Eppley Foundation Offers Opportunity for Novel Research

Feb 2, 2018, 14:30 PM by Melodi Moore
The Eppley Foundation supports advanced, novel, scientific research by PhDs or MDs with an established record of publication in their specialties.  The Foundation funds projects in biological and physical sciences. Particular areas of interest include innovative medical investigations, endangered species and ecosystems in the U.S. and abroad, and climate change.

The Foundation does not fund work that can qualify for funding from conventional sources such as the National Science Foundation or the National Institutes of Health, or similar agencies at the state level.

It is important to the Foundation that the work proposed be novel in its insights and unlikely to be underway elsewhere. The Foundation is prepared to take risks.

Any applicant to the Foundation must be associated with a nonprofit organization with headquarters or a branch office in the US to process the funds. Checks are not issued directly to individuals. Please be aware that the foundation only rarely funds research into diseases that have considerable financial support available, such as AIDS, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Letters of inquiry should be written in language clear to the layman. LOIs, not to exceed 1,000 words, should be received by March 15th.
