This page contains information regarding OWW's current funding situation along with possible future funding opportunities.

Current Funding

MIT/Microsoft icampus Grant -- One time, $16,000 dollars in direct funding.

OpenWetWare is also graciously hosted by CSBi with technical support from MIT's BioMicro Center.

Future Funding Possibilities

It looks as though most funding agencies need a cover letter (1-2 pages) before the full application is sent. Also, many require being a 501(c)(3) organization. We can possibly go through MIT, but it may be better to start that registration.

Google grants


Google allows applications for free AdSense advertising to recognized 501(c)(3) organization From Google:

The Google Grants program supports organizations sharing our philosophy of community service
to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health,
the environment, youth advocacy, and the arts. 

Sun Microsystems Foundation


Perhaps we can get an inside track here with people we know at Sun? There are no real avenues for general applications



Once again, not really supportive of outside grants. But doesn't hurt to send in an application.

Sloan Foundation


MacArthur Foundation


They have a new Intellectual Property and the Public Domain Program that we might fit into.

Hewlett Foundation


They fund OCW. Not much of a research focus, but worth a try.



Possible donation of server-space?

Biotech possibilities

Amgen Foundation
