Foundation grants are intended to enable people of outstanding talent to pursue projects and research that would not ordinarily be funded through other grant making and funding bodies. In keeping with this purpose, the Foundation awards grants directly to individuals rather than through institutions. Recipients may be writers, scientists, artists, social scientists, humanists, entrepreneurs or those in other fields and disciplines. Projects are embodied as “egoless” endeavors, where the focus is on the action and impact over the individual. This may manifest as anonymity, a humble attitude or in a multitude of other ways.
