Just as MRS is unique in its egalitarian methodology, so too is our approach to the Materials Research Society Foundation.
In particular, and unlike many foundations, there will be no capital campaign or endowment-building to fund a single, long-term society-determined project or program. Instead, this Foundation will benefit a wide range of innovative grassroots, member-driven initiatives—from student chapter proposals, to local or regional education/outreach projects, to those with the potential to impact the materials enterprise worldwide. The Materials Research Society Foundation will leverage corporate partner, institutional and individual support to invest in projects of importance to the materials community, as defined by the materials community. In other words, it’s Your MRS, Your Way!
