Yes! Experiment is a platform that facilitates crowd-sourced research awards. Successful project funding will be made as an award directly to your institution, institution-affiliated foundation, or equivalent authority. The award will be made by Experiment, or Experiment approved 501(c)(3) partner, as a gift restricted for use by you, your lab, or department.
Almost any type of project can succeed on Experiment, but the best projects are ones that offer a chance to interact with a larger community. To learn more, check out our case studies that examine all types of successful experiments.
We encourage transparency but we don't enforce restrictions on what you can or cannot share. In the end, you control what content you're comfortable sharing with your backers.
Scientists have named squid after backers, hosted paleontology field visits, and thanked backers in published papers. Every project is a unique chance to share behind-the-scenes science.
We've gathered some successful stories to help you learn more.
