Whitehall Foundation Grant Programs The Whitehall Foundation, through its program of grants and grants-in-aid, assists scholarly research in the life sciences. It is the Foundation's policy to assist those dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by Federal Agencies or other foundations with specialized missions. 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. The overall goal should be to better understand behavioral output or brain mechanisms of behavior. Letter of Intent due January 15; Application due June 1.

Letter of Intent due January 15; Application due June 1.

The AACR is currently accepting applications for the following opportunities:

  • Grants for mentored researchers in the areas of lung, ovarian, pediatric, and breast cancer research, lymphoma, myeloma, and all areas of clinical and translational cancer research
  • A grant for tenure-eligible junior faculty focused on any area of cancer research
  • A grant for established investigators in the field of neuroendocrine tumor research
