Agency/Sponsor: Whitehall Foundation


Through the program of grants and grants-in-aid, scholarly research in the life sciences and basic biological research is assisted with funding. The Foundation is currently interested in basic research in neurobiology, defined as follows: Invertebrate and vertebrate (excluding clinical) neurobiology, specifically investigations of neural mechanisms involved in sensory, motor, and other complex functions of the whole organism as these relate to behavior.

ELIGIBILITY: The Foundation emphasizes the support of young scientists at the beginning of their careers and productive senior scientists who wish to move into new fields of interest. The Foundation does not award funds to investigators who have substantial existing or potential support, even if it is for an unrelated purpose.

FUNDING: Research grants normally range from $30,000 to $75,000 per year. Grants in-Aid are awarded for a one-year period and do not exceed $30,000.
