Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

The Science of Learning STEM


Although the Student Retention program used to fund interventions that would improve undergraduate or graduate completion rates, especially for women and minorities, funding for intervention projects is no longer available. 

Interested grantseekers with a relevant project idea should email a one page letter of inquiry to Program Director Elizabeth Boylan.  Before submitting a letter of inquiry, please review the Foundation's guidelines on what we do not fund.

For more information about letters of inquiry or other Alfred P. Sloan Foundation grant application procedures, visit our Apply for Grants page.
