In 2015, the Foundation awarded $1.3 million in grants to select doctors and medical scientists focusing on curing cancers that affect women. These 13 recipients from across the United States received a $100,000 grant to conduct cutting-edge research.
Since 1996, the Foundation has given more than $21.7 million to support this effort.
Read about how this research has resulted in breakthroughs, new discoveries and promising research.

Who receives the grants?

Grants are awarded each year to researchers at accredited medical schools recommended by The Mary Kay Foundation Research Review Committee, which is composed of prominent doctors who volunteer their time to help the Foundation select the best recipients across the United States. After reviewing these recommendations, the Board of Directors at the Foundation selects the grant recipients.
