Max Bell Foundation provides support with three types of grants: Project Grants, Development Grants, and Senior Fellow Grants.

Project Grants support clearly defined activities designed to achieve a specific purpose that aligns with the Foundation’s mission, strategic priority, and granting guidelines. A typical project grant ranges from 1-3 years in duration and has a budget that ranges from $50,000 to $200,000. Project grants are described in more detail here.

Development Grants (formerly called “internship grants”) support organizations who wish to hire a junior level person to work for a short term (typically 4 month) full time contract. Please note that we do not make grants to individuals seeking internship positions, nor do we participate in screening candidates for internship positions supported by this program. Development grants are described in more detail here.

Senior Fellow Grants support mid-career individuals who wish to undertake a well defined project that will add value to debates over critical public policy issues in health and wellness, education, and/or environment. Senior fellow grants are described in more detail here.
