Alfred P. Sloan Foundation (NY)



The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation was established in 1934 by Alfred P. Sloan, Jr. The foundation believes that a carefully reasoned and systematic understanding of the forces of nature and society, when applied inventively and wisely, can lead to a better world for all.


The foundation makes grants to support original research and broad-based education that is related to science, technology, and economic performance; and to improve the quality of American life. They believe that the scholars and practitioners who work in these fields are chief drivers of the nation's health and prosperity.



The foundation is interested in projects that strongly benefits the society, and for which funding from the private sector, the government, or other foundations is not widely available.
