Active Grants

Below is a list of the “active” grants of the Flinn Foundation—those grants that have been awarded and have yet to receive final payment; and/or for which grant-related activities have not concluded.

Many Flinn Foundation grants are multi-year awards that receive payments at several junctures. In some cases, grants are extended (without additional funding) beyond their scheduled date of conclusion.

This list is not comprehensive, as it excludes modest grants for membership dues to philanthropic organizations and other miscellaneous awards, but represents the Foundation’s project-specific grant-making activity to achieve its strategic goals.

Arizona State University

City: Tempe

Amount: $100,000

Award Date: 2021

Duration: 18 months

Program Area: Bioscience

Support for a project, in partnership with Mayo Clinic Arizona, to adapt the current implementation of the ASU COVID-19 diagnostic system to a point-of-need diagnostic to fulfill the need of remote testing with high sensitivity. The diagnostic, which uses a robust, multiplexed, quantitative, pocket-size system, could be used for early detection of COVID-19 in developing countries. The testing relies on smartphones for the cloud storage of data and computational resources for algorithms. This grant is awarded under the Flinn Foundation Translational Research Seed Grant Initiative to support research collaborations between basic scientists and clinical researchers.
