NLGI RESEARCH GRANTS PROGRAM OUTLINE
NLGI’s Mission and Vision:
It is the Mission of NLGI to provide resources relevant to the needs of the global grease community. NLGI’s Vision is to be recognized as the premier source of support to consumers, researchers, manufacturers, suppliers, marketers and other key stakeholders of the worldwide lubricating grease industry.
In keeping with these ideals, NLGI has established a program of Research Grants to enable qualified Universities and Nonprofit Institutes to undertake scientific inquiry into any aspect of lubricating grease technology. We aim to serve our global community with yearly grants in support of fundamental research into grease chemistry, thickener systems, test methods, process technologies, production efficiencies, sustainable use, toxicology, sustainable additives, renewable carbon content, biodegradability and other themes.
