These funds were established through legacy plans with the Jewish Community Foundation, which allocates grants based on criteria specified by the donors or their fund advisors.


Science Foundation Arizona Invests in Eight Arizona Research Programs

Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz) has made approximately $2 million in investments to help eight Arizona-based research programs further develop existing research to the point of technology commercialization as part of its 2007 Small Business Catalytic (SBC) program.

The purpose of this program, which focuses on making seed investments in innovation that may have high-impact commercial outcomes, is to create a catalyst for technology development, company formation and high-tech job creation in Arizona.

The selected proposals include research in medical technologies, information technologies and renewable energy, among other areas. To be successful for SFAz funding, the proposals had to demonstrate positive impacts to the local institutions and the state. Additionally, all businesses grown from SFAz's SBC seed funding are required to remain in the state.
