Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation -- non-profit research institutions to promote research in chemistry and the life sciences, broadly interpreted, and particularly to foster the invention of methods, instruments, and materials that will open up new avenues of research in science. 

CCLI (Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement) -- The CCLI program seeks to improve the quality of undergraduate science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET) courses, curricula, and laboratories. It encompasses SMET education for all students and targets activities affecting the learning environment, content, and educational practices. The program features three major tracks: (1) Educational Materials Development, (2) Adaptation and Implementation (of exemplary materials, laboratory experiences, and educational practices), and (3) National Dissemination.

Gender Equity in Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology (PGE) The program seeks to broaden the participation of girls and young women in all fields of science, mathematics, engineering and technology (SMET) education by supporting research, demonstration, and dissemination projects that will lead to change in education policy and practice.

W. M. Keck Foundation   -- Foundation's grantmaking is focused primarily on the areas of medical research, science, and engineering.
