The William F. Milton Fund, established in 1924, is one of the oldest existing bequests made to Harvard University. It funds projects in the fields of medicine, geography, history, and science. The winning projects must either promote the physical and material welfare and prosperity of the human race, or investigate and determine the value and importance of any discovery or invention, or assist in the discovery and perfecting of any special means of alleviating or curing human disease.
