The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World is committed to funding novel, non-duplicative research and engaging in direct charitable activities focusing on scientific and regulatory gaps. Each grant project focuses on at least one of the “smoke-free purposes,” described in the Foundation’s Certificate of Incorporation, Article Third.
The Foundation funds grants in three broad categories:
The Foundation’s research program is guided by experienced researchers, scientists, and policy experts. The process for screening, reviewing, and awarding grants is conducted in a transparent manner and includes explicit and clear guidelines for grant applications. The grant selection process is supported by independent peer review with no influence, involvement or participation from the tobacco industry or any other industry or commercial entity.
The Foundation encourages interventions and recommendations which will accelerate and lead global decline in adult smoking, with the goal of ending smoking in this generation. The Foundation recognizes that countries at different levels of economic development will need different solutions, and that advances in behavioural science and technology can play a key role in harm reduction relative to smoking.
Foundation for a Smoke-Free World directly solicits early-phase concept memos and proposals from organizations identified and known to be well suited to advance its mission and programs.
