Please note: The Lemelson Foundation does not seek, nor often fund, unsolicited grant applications. The Foundation’s approach to grantmaking focuses on making commitments that enable us to invest in long-term strategies and partnerships which align with Our Approach and Our Programs.

We do not generally directly support inventors in the creation or development of individual inventions; however such support may be accessible through our partners, as noted on our How to Participate page.
