Research Plan Length: The body of the proposal may not exceed nine (9) pages, including figures and tables, excluding references, cover sheet and budget sheet. Applicants must use standardized cover and budget sheets provided online. All application requirements can be found in the grant application requirements section.
Submission deadline: Applications must be submitted online no later than January 15, 2014 at 5:00 pm PST.

Call for Applications: Arthritis National Research Foundation Research Grant Program
The arthritis research grant application deadline is January 15, 2014 at 5:00 PM PST. Grants are awarded on an annual basis.
Grant applicants will be notified of the outcome by April 30, 2014.
The arthritis grant offered by the Arthritis National Research Foundation is meant to jump-start your research. We want your arthritis research ideas to become reality. While we cannot support everyone's projects we welcome all new concepts and ideas. At the Arthritis National Research Foundation we want to move arthritis research forward to find new treatments and to cure arthritis.
Submit your research proposal and be a part of finding a cure for arthritis related diseases. This arthritis grant is here to fund young investigators ready to push the envelope of arthritis research.
ANRF’s Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Board are committed to providing uninterrupted research in the search for new therapies and a cure. The results will mean improved treatment for the estimated 50 million Americans and 300,000 who suffer from some form of arthritis.
The Scientific Advisory Board and the Board of Directors review grant proposals annually.
Clinical and basic studies will be considered. Clinical studies should have a translational component that helps reveal the underlying mechanisms or response to therapy.
Investigators must possess either a M.D. and/or Ph.D. degree or equivalent, affiliated with a qualified, non-profit institution.
Preference will be given to senior post-doctoral investigators transitioning to independent investigator status and new assistant professors. Applicant may not have (or ever had) an NIH R01 grant or equivalent. (“Or equivalent” is defined as receipt of an NIH K08 grant and other support totaling more than $200,000 per year.)
ANRF will seek to fund at least one or two grants per year focusing on clinical research.
Grants are awarded for one year. First-year recipients may submit a detailed progress report by mid-January during the year of their award, requesting a second year.
Grants awarded will be in the range of $50,000 to $100,000. Partial funding may be awarded if grantee has documentation that the remainder of the funding for proposed research has been acquired.
ANRF will fund salaries, supplies and equipment directly related to the proposed studies. Overhead or indirect costs will not be funded.
ANRF will seek to fund at least one grant each year focusing on juvenile arthritis.
ANRF routinely funds 12-20 grants per year.
Additional administrative review may be rendered to determine priority for funding when multiple proposals are received from a single laboratory, Division or Department.
Applicants need not be U.S. citizens; however, all work must be done at a qualified U.S. nonprofit research insitution.
