Mission
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is an independent private foundation dedicated to advancing the biomedical sciences by supporting research and other scientific and educational activities. Within this broad mission, BWF has two primary goals:
*      To help scientists early in their careers develop as independent investigators
*      To advance fields in the basic biomedical sciences that are undervalued or in need of particular encouragement
 
BWF makes grants primarily to degree-granting institutions on behalf of individual researchers, who must be nominated by their institutions. To complement these competitive award programs, the Fund also makes grants to nonprofit organizations conducting activities intended to improve the general environment for science.
