All it takes is a spark. The mission of the Kaufman Foundation is to support fundamental research in biology, chemistry, and physics at Pennsylvania institutions of higher education. The Foundation distributes grants in two areas: New Investigator Research and New Initiative Research.
Kaufman believed in the potential impact of fundamental, curiosity-driven science and the strength of working across interdisciplinary boundaries. He also recognized the importance of supporting early and mid-career scientists, while acknowledging the major accomplishments achieved after a lifetime of high-impact contributions. We invite you to learn more about how we can help you bring your breakthrough ideas to life.
