Return to Fannie and John Hertz Foundation

Welcome to our Matching Gift and Volunteer Grant Resource Page

The Fannie & John Hertz Foundation gives exceptionally creative and innovative young men and women the opportunity to pursue a PhD degree in the applied physical, engineering and biological sciences with financial, technical, and mentoring support. Through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the Hertz Fellows pursue innovative research and entrepreneurial ideas in laboratories at universities across our country. Each year the Foundation selects Hertz Fellows through a highly competitive application and interview process.  Currently the Foundation annually awards up to fifteen graduate student Fellowships for fully-funded PhD research, including tuition and stipend (for up to five years).

An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.

Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization.

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
