2014 Egg Nutrition Center Request for Proposals
Letters of Intent (LOI) are due by January 1, 2014
The Egg Nutrition Center (ENC) is soliciting research proposals addressing the nutritional value of eggs as part of a healthy diet. Proposed research should advance fundamental knowledge about nutrition.
Research grants awarded by the ENC are typically 1 or 2-year grants with total grant support normally less than $200,000. Larger grants representing novel opportunities or exceptional merit will be considered. The ENC encourages collaborative research projects with Federal agencies, food industry or other USDA commodity programs. Awards are restricted to researchers in the United States.
Gerber Foundation Pediatric Research Grants Program
Awards and time periods vary depending upon the specific project. Research projects may be no longer than 3 years in length. Total grant size should be no more than roughly $300,000.
The Foundation may receive grant proposals from unsolicited sources as well as from organizations with which we have been in contact. However, our preference is for an initial concept paper with subsequent communication between the grant applicant and Program staff as the grant proposal is being developed. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Foundation at any point in the process to discuss their project.
Concept papers are due June 1 and December 1 of each year. If these dates fall on a weekend, the papers are due the next business day. Determination of interest in receiving a full proposal is generally made within three weeks.
