Focused Program Grants in Science
The Trust has initiated several focused grant programs in the sciences. Procedures vary for applying to one or another of these grant programs, and interested organizations should review each one for eligibility, deadlines, and other guidelines.
Focused grant programs in the sciences:
Murdock College Science Research Program
The goal of this program is to strengthen faculty and undergraduate student research efforts in the natural sciences at private, predominantly undergraduate colleges and universities in the Trust's grantmaking region.
Murdock College Research Program for the Life Sciences
This program is designed to support research in the life sciences at private, predominantly undergraduate colleges and universities in the Trust's grantmaking region.
Exceptional Opportunity Grants Program
This program supports projects for select public research universities that have special merit but require one-time funding because of time constraints, no immediate source of funding, or some other unusual circumstance.
Partners in Science Program
This program provides research opportunities for science-trained high school science teachers to work for two summers with investigators in academic labs in cutting-edge research.
Research Start-up Grants for New Science Faculty
This program provides funding to supplement the establishment of new faculty positions in the natural sciences at private, predominantly undergraduate colleges and universities in the Trust’s grantmaking region.
More information on these focused programs, as well as application guidelines, are available on the specific program pages on this website. Please contact the Trust by email or by phone at 360-694-8415 if you have questions regarding any of these grants opportunities.
