Helping Scholars Accelerate Foward
The Forbeck Foundation is dedicated to helping our Scholars recover from laboratory setbacks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. As many areas of the country open with increased rates of vaccination, we would like to offer one-time grants up to $30,000 to help accelerate their work forward. These proposals should be unique from the 'recovery' grants that we offered previously and should focus on the science that drives their work.
- Maximum of $30,000 per request, with only one request per scholar. The Foundation will look favorably on applications that focus on a specific experiment or question that is critical for the Scholar to obtain the preliminary data needed for a larger Foundation/Federal award. The request should be a maximum of two pages and clearly delineate the critical question to be asked; how the money will allow the experiment(s) to be conducted; and how the results will allow the Scholar to advance her/his work.
- We are limiting request to individuals that joined the scholar program from 2015 onwards
- Applications must be approved by their institution
- Applications are due by September 30, 2021. They will be reviewed by the Foundations Scientific Advisory Board. Approved applicants will be notified by October 31st, 2021.
