Scientists are turning to The Leakey Foundation for funding now more than ever.
During the most recent grants cycle, Spring 2012, we received a record number of applications (the highest number in 44 years). The competition was stiff, and the funding decisions were even more difficult than usual. Here is a breakdown of some statistics for the cycle:
We received 111 grant applications, including 3 applications for Franklin Mosher Baldwin Fellowships. Of the 111 applications we received, 41 were in the Behavior category, and 60 were in the Paleoanthropology category, with 7 listed in both Behavior and Paleo.
We funded 27 grants, for a total of $333,004.00. This included:
3 Baldwin grants, for $34,000.00
12 grants, for $119,504.00
14 Paleoanthropology grants, for $189,500.00
