ABMRF/The Foundation for Alcohol Research Grant Program
Depending on the nature of the proposed research, applications submitted to the Foundation are reviewed by the Medical Advisory Council or the Behavioral and Social Advisory Council. Both Councils meet yearly in the spring. The next deadline for submitting applications is February 15th. Grants are awarded for either one or two years for a maximum of $75,000 for each of the years.
The Foundation accepts applications for grants to conduct research on the effects of alcohol consumption on health and behavior. The following areas are of greater interest:
Studies on how particular patterns of consumption (quantity of alcohol consumed, types of alcoholic beverages consumed, frequency of consumption and context) are related to health and behavioral outcomes.
Interdisciplinary, bio-informatics, and other approaches to elucidate genetic and environmental factors that influence the patterns of consumption of alcoholic beverages and related consequences.
The Foundation encourages basic and clinical research, including epidemiology. Examples of research topics include factors influencing underage drinking, mechanisms of alcohol-related organ injury, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, and effects of alcohol on general health.
The Foundation gives preference to young investigators, but does not support students or trainees in pre- or post-doctoral programs. It does not fund thesis or dissertation research. Grants are made to academic and research institutions in the United States, Canada and South Africa, not to individuals. Evidence of support for the investigator from the institution is desirable.
The Foundation does not support research on treatment of the complications of advanced alcoholism. However, research involving treatment paradigms intended to elucidate the pathogenesis of alcohol-related problems will be considered. Non-research activities such as education projects, public awareness efforts and referral services are not eligible for support.
Grant applicants are typically notified within a month following the Advisory Council meetings, which is held in April or May.
Please contact our Grants Program Administrator for more information.
