Find Funding for Neuroscience Research and Youth Mental Health: Meet Klingenstein Philanthropies (2022)
The Klingenstein Philanthropies is comprised of three foundations whose interests reflect the passions and experiences of the Klingenstein family. Although the focus of each foundation differs, together they aim to improve every person’s health, well-being, and education, particularly those most in need.
Klingenstein Philanthropies will present to Boston University faculty members and postdocs about two of its annual grant programs.
