Through the 2018 Scialog Collaborative Innovation Awards program, Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA) and three of its sister science philanthropies funded a total of $2.9 million in seed funding for cutting-edge research on the topics: Advanced Energy Storage, Chemical Machinery of the Cell, Time Domain Astrophysics, and Molecules Come to Life.

The program was created in 2010 by RCSA, which oversees its administration.  Scialog - which stands for "science dialogue" - funds early career scientists to pursue transformative research, in dialogue with their fellow grantees, on crucial issues of scientific inquiry. In 2018’s round of conferences, The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Heisings-Simons Foundation contributed considerable funding to support Scialog collaborative projects.
