The Foundation Relations office works to track and organize active RFPs from many different sources and to disseminate them as efficiently and effectively as possible in a helpful and accessible format. RFPs will be circulated through the NoLimitFoundationRFPs mailman list which is managed by Juliet Tripaldi (tripaldi@mit.edu) of OFR. These digests will contain selected RFPs as well as prize announcements that are available at the time of distribution and will be circulated approximately twice per month. No internal competition is required to apply for these opportunities. To receive the NoLimitFoundationRFPs digests please register here.

For foundation opportunities that limit the number of applications that can be submitted per institution, Foundation Relations collaborates with the Office of the Provost, the Vice President for Research, and deans and administrative officers in order to ensure a fair internal competition. Notifications about these restricted funding opportunities are managed by Cathy Borgesen (borgesen@mit.edu) of the VPR’s office.
