Partners In Science

OCRFA Partners in Science Program enables donors to select and sponsor OCRFA-funded scientists based on criteria such as geographic location, specific institution, or area of study. Sponsored researchers are selected by the donor after members of the OCRFA Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) have conducted a peer-review of all the submitted applications and have recommend the top grants for funding to the Board of Directors, who in turn vote on the grants for final approval. Learn more about Partners in Science.
