The John Templeton Foundation has two grantmaking cycles during the calendar year. During both cycles we accept Online Funding Inquiries related to our Core Funding Areas and our Funding Priorities. If the Foundation approves your Online Funding Inquiry, we will ask for a more detailed Full Proposal. Please note that Full Proposals are by invitation only.

All grant applications must be completed and submitted electronically through the Templeton Portal, which can be reached by clicking the Apply for Funding button at right. No applications will be accepted by mail or e-mail.

To learn about the details of each step in our grantmaking process, click the boxes above or the headings listed in the lefthand column throughout this section.

Our Grantmaking Calendar

The John Templeton Foundation accepts Online Funding Inquiries twice a year and reviews them in relation to all other funding requests received during the same submission window.
