Zenith Grants

Current Status: Closed
Eligibility: Researchers and Outreach Specialists Worldwide

The zenith is the highest point achieved 
by a celestial body in the night sky.

Over $27 million dollars in Zenith Grants (formerly: FQxI’s Large Grants) have been awarded in multiple RFPs. These Zenith Grants are awarded (through the FQxI Fund, a donor-advised fund at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, or directly by FQxI) as research grants to theorists and experimenters in support of personnel, equipment, travel, workshops, and experiments; some funding also targets projects that effectively disseminate information about foundational research to laypeople. Proposals are subject to a competitive evaluation process of expert peer review similar to that employed by national scientific funding agencies.
