Stephen Hawking

Neither the Estate of Stephen Hawking nor the Stephen Hawking Foundation are grant-making bodies.

The Estate authorises a limited number of commercial activities to promote Professor Hawking’s work and legacy.

Professor Hawking created the Foundation to further research into cosmology, astrophysics, fundamental particle physics, motor neurone disease (MND) and to improve the care offered to people with MND. Its funds are fully committed to established programmes in these specific areas.
