Opportunities for Institutions
HHMI awards grants to biomedical research institutions, universities, and colleges to support innovative science education programs at the pre-kindergarten to 12th-grade and undergraduate levels. These programs seek to encourage young people's interest in science, prepare them for science-related careers, and increase science literacy among all students, including non-science majors.
HHMI also has grant initiatives for institutions that support interdisciplinary graduate-level research training and the integration of medicine into biomedical research training.
Please note that HHMI's grants for institutions are awarded through competitions that have specific objectives and eligibility criteria and that HHMI does not encourage and rarely funds unsolicited grant proposals.
In addition to its competitive grant initiatives for institutions, HHMI occasionally awards special grants in response to unique needs and opportunities it identifies in science education and research training. To learn more, visit About the Grants Office.
