Clemson University

Grant-Seeking Forum: W.M. Keck Foundation

The Office of Research Development, the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations, and the Watt Family Innovation Center invite you to attend the first Grant-Seeking Forum of the 2017-2018 academic year focused on the W.M. Keck Foundation.

The W.M. Keck Foundation supports outstanding science, engineering and medical research. This forum will focus on Keck’s Research Grant Program, which Clemson’s Office of the Vice President for Research will conduct a Limited Submission competition for in late October through mid-November.
Keck’s Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by supporting projects in two specific areas: 1) medical research and 2) science and engineering.  Successful projects must be distinctive and novel in their approach, demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches or by challenging the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in their field.  Grants typically range from $500,000 to $2 million.
