One of the main goals of WOKC is to find cures through research. To meet this goal, WOKC provides grants to support meritorious research ranging from basic laboratory investigation to clinical management of pediatric cancers. For all awarded grants, collaboration with a pediatric cancer treatment center and an institution with basic and/or clinical research programs are encouraged.
Policies and Guidelines
Research Grants are offered to encourage the development of new information that contributes to the understanding, treatment, and cure of pediatric cancers. In addition, consideration will be given to those projects that provide insight into information that may contribute to the development of new therapies for pediatric cancers. All proposals must be hypothesis driven, and sufficient preliminary data must be provided to justify the WOKC support. Information derived from these studies should have high potential for sustainable future support from other funding agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Research Grant applications should focus on basic science research or clinical research. Those proposals that include methodologies requiring sampling of materials from human subjects will be considered under this mechanism only if the sampling method constitutes minimal patient risk and are approved by the clinical/research institutions internal review board. All other projects utilizing human subjects must submit a Clinical Research Letter of Intent.
Applications for Research Grants are being accepted with the following stipulations:
Funding amount from $50,000 up to $150,000, including no more than 8% indirect costs, may be requested.
Grants may be approved for up to a 1 year period of funding.
Because grants cover only one year of research, likelihood of future funding from other sources will be considered and should be explained by the applicant.
Applicants must be independent investigators, or clinical or research receiving direct oversight/mentorship by an independent investigator.
Applicants need not be U.S. Citizens or hold a U.S. permanent visa to apply for this award.

Barth Syndrome Foundation 2013 Request for Research Proposals
The Barth Syndrome Foundation, Inc. (BSF) and its international affiliates are pleased to announce the availability of funding for basic science and clinical research on the natural history, biochemical basis, and treatment of Barth syndrome. Starting in 2013, there will be two types of grant awards: IDEA grants for 1-2 years and DEVELOPMENT grants for 2-3 years with budgetary maximums of US $50,000 or $100,000, respectively over the full period. BSF's Research Grant Program allows young, non-tenured investigators to include in their submitted budget up to 75% of the direct costs amount as PI salary (10% for established investigators). In addition, for those clinical applications where volunteers must travel to a clinical research site, these travel expenses will be handled separately and will not be included in the application budget limitation. We encourage all investigators at every professional level to submit their best ideas for advancing the state of knowledge about Barth syndrome so that progress can be made in finding a specific treatment or a cure for this unusual mitochondrial disease. There are no geographical limitations to this funding.
Barth syndrome (BTHS) is a serious X-linked genetic condition associated with cardiomyopathy, neutropenia, skeletal muscle weakness, exercise intolerance, growth delay, and diverse biochemical abnormalities (including defects in mitochondrial metabolism and phospholipid biosynthesis). Because many clinical and biochemical abnormalities of Barth syndrome remain poorly understood, we are seeking proposals for both basic science and clinical research that may shed light on any aspect of the syndrome, with the ultimate objective of developing a specific treatment or a cure.
Types of Proposals Sought
We are interested in providing financial assistance to investigators interested in exploring the field of BTHS science and/or clinical research. We anticipate that these funds might be useful as “seed grants” for the testing of initial hypotheses and the collection of preliminary data that can lead to successful long-term funding by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other major granting institutions around the world. In addition to those having prior research experience with BTHS, we encourage young investigators and experienced investigators that are new to the field of BTHS to submit proposals for funding.
We have a competitive grant process. Applications should be of 10–15 pages in length and must follow the instructions listed on the BSF website. In general terms, detailed information about the specific aims, significance, research design and methods, personnel, facilities, and budget will be required. A one-page, “Letter of Intent” is required for DEVELOPMENT grant applicants with a due date of September 1, 2013. The “Letter of Intent” is optional for IDEA grant applicants. We strongly encourage the submission of letters of intent before the due date to allow ample time for review and feedback.
Completed applications (and/or “Letters of Intent”) will be forwarded to the BSF Scientific and Medical Advisory Board (as well as to expert outside reviewers) for confidential evaluation. Response to the “Letter of Intent” will be communicated within two weeks of receipt. Based on the recommendations of the BSF Scientific and Medical Advisory Board, the BSF Board of Directors will make the final funding decisions about the grant applications. Please review our “Grants Awarded” webpage for a listing of grants that BSF and its affiliates have awarded to date.
We anticipate awarding several IDEA and DEVELOPMENT grants each year. Funds will be available soon after the successful grant applicants have been notified in early March, 2014.
The deadline for submission of the completed research grant application is October 31, 2013, and grants will be awarded in early March, 2014. The deadline for the one-page "Letter of Intent," if applicable, is September 1, 2013.
