Request for Proposals: Little Giraffe Foundation 2014 Neonatal Research Initiative
The Little Giraffe Foundation is offering research grants in the amount of $5,000 - $10,000 for neonatal research.
We invite qualified scientists, doctors, and nurses at universities, hospitals and research institutions, to submit applications for research grants directed at addressing both the long term and immediate health needs caused by premature birth.
All applicants must be based in the United States and represent a U.S. based institution. Little Giraffe Foundation does not award grants to individuals or families.
Research subjects appropriate for support by the Little Giraffe Foundation include basic biological processes governing development, genetics, clinical studies, studies of reproductive health, environmental toxicology, and social and behavioral studies.
Potential applicants should submit a Letter of Intent addressed to the Little Giraffe Funding Committee summarizing the proposed studies. Letter of intent should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of “LGF Research Funding Request”.
Letters of Intent should be no more than 4 pages and must include the following:
1. Name of the study, amount of requested funds, and a 100-200 word overview describing the objective.
2. The relevance to our mission of addressing both the long term and immediate health needs caused by premature birth as well as identifying causes of premature birth and ways to prevent this.
3. The hypothesis or hypotheses to be tested.
4. Preliminary data.
5. A statement of the methods.
6. A plan for evaluating the results.
7. Current financial support: list the current financial support. If there are no other grants, state “NONE.”
8. Willingness to accept corporate donations. Occasionally we will be able to partner with someone like Enfamil for a study around breast milk or Pampers for studies around liver and kidney functionality. Are you open to accepting these types of funds?
Letters of intent must be submitted by May 16, 2014. Applications will then be evaluated by the Funding Committee and awards will be announced during the month of July.
Applications will be accepted throughout the year and occasionally research will be funded in advance of the July evaluation period. Applicants are therefore encouraged to send in letters of intent throughout the year.
