Program Applications

The FED's grant program supports tax exempt organizations that are engaged in critical inter-disciplinary research, education, knowledge sharing, and/or policy development with the widest effect on advancing the concepts of broad-based ownership and entrepreneurship. In the past five years, the Foundation has focused on opportunities for improved research and educational materials on shared capitalism and ownership models, especially in science- and technology-based industries. We are excited to see young and senior scholars engaged in growing a body of important research, teaching materials, and new means for broadly disseminating materials to business educators.
