About Our Grant Programs
The primary interest of the Ova Prima Foundation continues to be support
for exemplary advances in scientific, engineering, biomedical, bioengineering,
and ethics research related to the Foundation's objectives, primarily at
accredited universities, colleges, and research laboratories throughout
United States and, in certain cases, English and/or German and/or Spanish
and/or French-speaking countries. At this time we regret we cannot accept
applications from the Virgin Islands and/or Guam. Applications to the Foundation
will need the signature of the institution's president or chair,
or his or her designated signatory substitute. Most colleges and universities
have official liaisons in the central development office through whom all
applications are coordinated.
To apply for a grant, please email the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The subject line of your email message should read "Attn:", followed by
the name of the appropriate grant officer. In the body of your email please
specify to which program you wish to apply, followed by a short budget
(line by line is not necessary), and an abstract of your proposal. The
Ova Prima Foundation will consider all applications at quarterly meetings,
and those abstracts we feel have promise will be invited to submit a full
application for funding.
Science, Engineering, and Biomedical Assays of Ovaprimatological
Francis Watkins Jr.
The Ova Prima Foundation's Science, Engineering, and Biomedical Assays
of Ovaprimatological Evidence program focuses on basic scientific, engineering,
and biomedical assays of ovaprimatological evidence. All scientists interested
in assaying the scientific, engineering, and biomedical evidence
made by ovaprimatologists are invited to apply. Grants are available for
$50,000 to $100,000 to support outstanding scientists, engineers, and
biomedical assessors in their pursuit of scientific, engineering, and biomedical
assays of ovaprimatological evidence.
Educational Outreach Program
Eric D. Peterson
Surveys developed by the Foundation's Division of Surveys and Questionnaires
have proven that the average fifth grader has, by the fifth grade, been
exposed to over three hundred hours of anti-ovaprimatological superstition
and pseudo-science, and less than twenty-five total hours of substantiated
ovaprimatologically correct information. The Ova Prima Foundation's Educational
Outreach Program supports the efforts of educators in colleges and universities
to develop and actuate educational programs specifically aimed at correcting
anti-ovaprimatological views in the popular culture, particularly those
fostered in the educational system and on television, and
those aimed at the K-12 population. Grants awarded in the past have
favored multi-media and interdisciplinary approaches to learning, including
CD-ROM and laboratory-based exploration. Grants range from $50,000 to $100,000
for three to five years.
Ovaprimatological Community Awareness Grants
One-time grants of $5,000 are available to licensed not-for-profit community
organizations to create, conduct, and evaluate Community Awareness of Ovaprimatological
Tenets (CAOT) projects. CAOT projects are those that raise an individual
community's awareness of the issues, trends, scientific validity, and history
of ovaprimatological research, investigations, and
forthcoming studies. Successful applications in the past have demonstrated
a need and necessity for the community's awareness and have outlined specific
strategies for increasing the quality of community education, correction,
Grant Conditions and Requirements
Potential applicants are advised that by submitting a request they consent
to comply with the following rules and regulations in the event that a
grant is awarded:
1. The grantee, as a condition of acceptance of a grant, affirms the
entire proceeds of the grant be used for the purposes of the project for
which the grant is made. Should the project be redirected, the Ova Prima
Foundation must be contacted immediately. Furthermore, the grantee affirms
that none of the funds will be used to reimburse organizations or consultants
engaged in fundraising, lobbying, or anti-ovaprimatological efforts.
2. Written progress reports will be made to the Foundation every six
months from the stated start of the project until termination, whereupon
an evaluation must be submitted within two months after termination date.
A financial accounting of expenditures shall accompany each report.
3. The grantee is to secure Ova Prima Foundation approval before
media reports, press releases, or any statements are made to the media
regarding the grant or the Ova Prima Foundation itself.
4. If a grant is awarded, the proceeds must be placed in an interest-bearing
account and the interest is to be used only for the purposes for which
the grant was awarded.
The Foundation will monitor and assess the impact of prior grants in
order to determine the Foundation's future objectives in grant-giving.
