Bikes Belong Foundation Offers Research Grants to Study Economic Impact of Bicycling

The Bikes Belong Foundation, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit arm of Bikes Belong, concentrates its work on bicycle safety projects and children's bicycle programs. The foundation aims to support its mission by funding a limited number of research grants each year.

Grants of $5,000 to $10,000 will be awarded for research that examines the economic impact of additional or improved bicycling facilities or bike-related events, and for special opportunities and innovative or unique research efforts considered on a case-by-case basis. (Applicants interested in the special opportunities priority area should contact the foundation's research analyst before submitting an application.).  Applicants must be U.S. colleges, universities, other institutions of higher education, or nonprofit research organizations. Individuals will not be considered for funding.

Bikes Belong Foundation reviews applications twice per year. The next application deadline is September 30, 2011.

Visit the Bikes Belong Web site for complete program guidelines, application form, and information on previously funded research projects.
