Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood: Grants to Improve the Quality of Life of Children in United States

Deadline: 29 September 2017

Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood is seeking applications to provide funding to research and development projects that may ultimately enhance the development, health, safety, education or quality of life of children from infancy through seven years of age across the country.

Each of its grants is made with the expectation that a successful project outcome will be of significant interest to other investigators or developers, within the grantee’s field of endeavor, and will be amenable to beneficial application or adaptation elsewhere. In essence, the foundation’s goal is to provide seed money for those imaginative endeavors, addressed to the needs of young children, which appear most likely to bear fruit on a national scale.
