The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, a philanthropic nonprofit institution, was established in 1934 by Alfred Pritchard Sloan, Jr., then President and Chief Executive Officer of the General Motors Corporation.

The Foundation's programs and interests fall into the following areas:

*      Sloan Research Fellowships
*      Direct Support of Research
*      History of Science and Technology

Direct Support of Research

The Foundation provides support in selected areas or sub-areas of research that are of scientific significance and where its support can make a difference. This usually means that there are no major government funders when Sloan support begins. Areas in this program include the indoor environment, molecular evolution, theoretical neurobiology, computational molecular biology, astrophysics (Sloan Sky Survey), limits to knowledge (The Known, Unknown, Unknowable), and marine science (Census of Marine Life).
