REAP Fund Researcher Proposal Form
Are you a researcher either in academia or private industry? Do you have a plant-based or clean meat (real meat, grown directly from cells) research project in need of funding?

GFI understands the critical need for research and development in the plant-based and clean meat space. The GFI Research Excellence in Alternative Proteins (REAP) Fund enables GFI to strategically support research projects that show the most promise for advancing the fields of plant-based and clean meat and for which alternative sources of funding are currently not available or may take significant time to secure. In general, the types of projects chosen for support by the REAP Fund are those that are considered high impact but low risk. Additionally, the projected time frame in which most REAP funded projects are conducted is relatively short (1-3 years), increasing the likelihood that projects will get completed, and completed on schedule.

To submit a research proposal for GFI REAP funding, please complete the form below and email a brief (3-5 page) research proposal to GFI Scientific Foundations Liaison Erin Rees Clayton at Detailed instructions for the proposal are given at the bottom of this form. After filling out the form and emailing your proposal, you can expect to receive confirmation of receipt within one week.

If you have any questions about this form, the required research proposal, or the REAP Fund in general, please email Erin at To discuss how you can be part of this transformative work with your gift or grant to the GFI REAP Fund, please contact GFI Development Director Clare Bland at

Thank you for your interest in the GFI REAP Fund. Let's REAP the benefits of top-notch scientific research in the fields of plant-based and clean meat!
