Frederick Gardner Cottrell Foundation
Research Corporation Technologies established the Frederick Gardner Cottrell Foundation in December 1998 to provide financial support for scientific research and educational programs at qualified nonprofit organizations.
RCT named the foundation in honor of the university professor and inventor who championed the transfer of academic innovation to public use. The Cottrell Foundation receives its support from donations made by RCT and is a private, non-operating entity.
Since its formation, the foundation has provided nearly $13 million in support of selected scientific and educational programs throughout the United States. The Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant requests.
