Templeton Portal Questions

What is the Templeton Portal?

The Templeton Portal is the Foundation’s online grants system. The Portal allows applicants to create, submit, and monitor the status of funding requests to the John Templeton Foundation. The Portal is also where existing Grantees can find information on their grants and submit all related reporting requirements.

May several individuals share one Templeton Portal account?

Generally no. Templeton Portal accounts belong to an individual and not their affiliated organization. If you create an account and submit a request you will be serving as the Primary Contact throughout the lifecycle of the application process, and if funded, the active grant process. 

How do I create an account?

Go to portal.templeton.org and register as a new user. You will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions to activate your account.
