Tiny Beam foundation calls for application to its research planning grants for Academics and Research institutions to address the “burning question initiative” 2021.
Tiny Beam Fund is a small charitable foundation set up in the U.S. for University-based Researchers planning or recently Started projects addressing Concerns and problems from Industrial Animal Agriculture, especially those related to Low- and Middle-Income Countries.
These grants focus on a set of “burning questions” asked by leaders of NGOs trying to understand and find solutions to industrial food animal production’s negative impacts, particularly in developing countries.
The grants are intended to help academics to develop plans to pursue these “burning questions” or to speed up early-stage research into issues related to these questions. Grants are sent to successful applicants’ universities or academic institutions (which can be outside the U.S.).
Duration: 4 months
- Multiple grants are available for each round.
- Each applicant can request a grant amount from US$1,000 (minimum) to US$10,000 (maximum).

- An applicant (or the principal applicant if it is a team) must hold the Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) or be enrolled in a Ph.D. (or equivalent) program.
