M. Keck Foundation – UofU Internal Competition Information
Deadline: December 13, 2021
Click here to apply!

The Office of the Vice President for Research is seeking interdisciplinary and transformative project concepts for the W. M. Keck Foundation. Keck seeks to benefit humanity by supporting basic science projects in two specific areas (1) medical research and (2) science and engineering, that are distinctive and novel in their approach, question the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in a field. Funding requests are for $1,000,000 in direct costs over three years. The foundation prefers projects that are not too clinical or too applied, not related to therapeutics, not disease-specific, and not a “logical next step” in research. The foundation also prefers to fund projects for which federal funding is not readily available.

If you would like to submit an initial project idea, please complete and submit a one-page concept paper using the template attached to the Infoready call. The deadline to submit concept papers is December 13, 2021 (this is the first of three steps needed for an award decision in December 2022).

Please reach out to Lynn Wong with any questions or to discuss applicability of an idea.
