Incubator Grants

The Foundation offers an annual pool of approximately $40,000 for Incubator Grants of up to $10,000 each.

Incubator Grants fund one-year investigations, making them ideal for pilot studies, to test emerging theories in practice, and to build empirical evidence upon which to undertake a more advanced investigation.

The purpose of an Incubator Grant is to develop an idea, enable a research group to pursue a new idea, to provide seed funding and/or assess viability of a research idea.

An Incubator Grant is not designed to be part of a broader research program.
