Revson evaluates letters of inquiry as they are submitted throughout the year.
If you have been invited to apply for a grant, a Program Officer will reach out to you with instructions.
Applications are by invitation only, but you are welcome to submit a Letter of Inquiry. Please see Letter of Inquiry.
Given our small staff, we regret that we are unable to hold informational meetings with prospective grantees. Upon receipt of a letter of inquiry, staff may choose to contact applicants.
Please send your inquiries to [email protected]; they will be directed to the appropriate staff member.

All Revson-funded fellowships are administered by their sponsoring organization. You can read more about the fellowship programs in the Fellowships section, but please contact the sponsoring organization for information about the application process.

We do not grant scholarships or stipends to individual applicants.
Organizations should not submit a letter of inquiry for the same project. An organization may submit a letter of inquiry for a different project after one year since the initial inquiry.
