Eppley Foundation for Research

Due Date: 09/15/2017

The Eppley Foundation supports projects in biological and physical sciences. Areas of interest include endangered species and ecosystems in the U.S. and abroad, and climate change. 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.

The Foundation does not support work in the social sciences, education or computer science, and only rarely funds research into diseases that have considerable financial support available, such as AIDS, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

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.

Letters of inquiries (LOI) should be submitted before September 15 or March 15 to be considered.

Of all the offspring of time, Error is the most ancient, and is so old and familiar an acquaintance, that Truth, when discovered, comes upon most of us like an intruder, and meets the intruder’s welcome.
