What kind of grants are there?

The foundation’s most recent report on the activities of its grants is available here. The group’s grants to research universities, as well as to other organizations that can provide grants directly, are all included in this report. The groups included in “other” categories of grants are non-profit organizations, or “academic research universities.” More than half of the grants the foundation has made to “academic research universities” have been non-research grants.
