Basic ResearchThe Foundation believes that a carefully reasoned and systematic understanding of the forces of nature and society, when applied inventively and wisely, can lead to a better world for all.  With its Basic Research program area, the Foundation expands that understanding by funding original, high-quality  research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  Grants in the Basic Research program area promise to substantively benefit society or significantly add to the body of scientific knowledge.  By funding basic research, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation has created a digital survey of the sky, is advancing species identification and discovery worldwide, and is crafting a better understanding of the built environment in which we live.What We Don't Fund
