Focused Program Grants in Science
Murdock College Research Program for Natural Sciences
This program is designed to support research in the natural sciences at private, predominantly undergraduate colleges and universities in the Trust’s funding region. Eligible institutions must offer a baccalaureate degree, but not a doctoral degree, in the sciences. Principal investigators must hold a faculty appointment in a natural science department. The program was introduced in 1997 for supporting the life sciences. The program has been expanded in 2014 to include the natural sciences.
To find out more about applying for this program, please download the Guidelines for Natural Sciences Grants information. The application process differs from that of the General Grants program, so please read the instructions thoroughly. There is one proposal cycle per year with a deadline of October 1 for completed applications.
The online application form and the Instructions and Checklist information may be downloaded. Please read these documents carefully before you prepare and submit the complete online application (form and all necessary supporting documentation as indicated in the Checklist). For institutions making multiple applications, each complete proposal must be submitted separately.
