The Office of Foundation Relations has identified private foundation funding opportunities of interest to the Hopkins community. While this list is not intended to be exhaustive, it provides a range of opportunities across academic disciplines.
We encourage faculty and researchers to contact us at email@example.com if interested in applying for any of the opportunities listed below. We would be happy to learn about your work and discuss potential strategies for securing foundation support. We can provide background on individual foundations, guidance on developing competitive proposals and endorsement letters, and serve as a liaison to program officers.
Please note, some foundations require that any approach for funding be made through our office and some limit the number of proposals received from Johns Hopkins University in a given grant cycle. In some cases, Johns Hopkins has maintained long-standing institutional relationships with key funders. To help identify those foundations that merit a more strategic approach, our office maintains a list of centrally managed foundations. We strongly encourage contacting our team before communicating with or submitting a proposal/letter of inquiry to those selected foundations.
