Science Donors is committed to helping scientists receive the funding they deserve in order to further their research and project ideas. If you have a great idea for a project, or if you require additional means of funding to help complete your research project, please submit a project proposal to us for review.
In order for your project and funding request to be accepted into Science Donors, we do require that certain criteria is met. Below are our project guidelines. These must be met in order for a project to be accepted and promoted by Science Donors:
Projects must further the cause of Science. Whether you are a professional researcher looking for funding to complete a research project, or a science writer looking to start up a science blog, all project submissions must be relevant to science. We will not post projects which have no scientific intention.
Funding must cover the costs of running your research or work. This means that the money raised must be used to cover your research or work expenses. It does not mean that the money donated will pay your salary.
Project goals must be clearly defined. When writing your proposal, please be as specific as possible about the work you intend to perform and why you need the funding. Where possible, please define your expectations for your work and also include any break downs you might have for costs associated with your project.
We will not accept projects for personal funding. That is to say we will not accept project submissions which will facilitate funding to pay personal bills, scholarship funding requests or to buy personal items unrelated to scientific research.
Do not offer financial incentives. We will not accept project submissions where the project owner offers financial incentives to potential donors. Financial incentives can mean profit shares or ownership in any company. Submissions which offer financial incentives will be rejected.
