Our Strategy

To help nurture the intellectual freedom necessary to keep emerging democratic societies healthy and economically vibrant, MacArthur makes grants for the development of modern university-based science and social science research and training capabilities in Russia and provides long-term support for four leading African universities.

 

The Foundation is concluding its grantmaking for higher education in Africa and Russia and will no longer be accepting funding proposals.
