Foundation & Corporate Funding for Science Research (FCFSR) monthly newsletter is designed specifically to help you optimize your applications to foundations, industry, and other private sources of funding.

In today's tight and highly competitive funding environment, FCFSR can increase the investigators' chances for winning monies from non-federal sources. The country’s more than 76,000 foundations gave an estimated $45.7 billion in 2010, says the Foundation Center. And 81% of scientists surveyed by Principal Investigators Association (PIA) report they receive some funding from foundations.

The aim of FCFSR is to present practical, useful information on topics related to non‐federal research funding. The monthly online-distributed issues include interviews with experts and case studies on such topics as:

  • How to “sell” your research project to foundations
  • Strategies for networking with funders at conferences
  • Salvaging corporate funding requests after initial rejection
  • How to make presentations that score corporate support
  • Proven techniques for writing successful letters of inquiry
  • Using foundation board meetings to your advantage
  • Vital differences when applying for private vs. federal funding
  • Serious mistakes made by many applicants
  • And more!

Content includes “best practices” and “how‐to” advice, columns by experts, question‐and‐answer sections, and more. The material is gathered by reporters and editors who interview experts worldwide from all pertinent disciplines. A distinguished, multidisciplinary editorial advisory board serves as a resource for the editor, providing suggestions for topics and interviews.

In addition, “Foundation Spotlight,” a regular feature, reveals the details and peculiarities that optimize chances of success with a particular funder.
