The Foundation provides seed money or partial funding to novel projects and forward-looking leaders and teams. We seek to support projects that enhance national strengths in science and technology, prioritize Franco-American cooperation, or promote the Foundation's mission in other ways.
THE RICHARD LOUNSBERY AWARD

to recognize extraordinary scientific achievement in biology and medicine. The prize is intended to stimulate research and encourage reciprocal scientific exchanges between the
United States and France.
THE RICHARD LOUNSBERY
was founded in 1959, with a goal to enhance national strengths in science and technology and foster strong Franco-American cooperation. To this day, the Foundation has stayed true to its roots while expanding to promote science among youth and to support components of US policy issues pertaining to science.
