Scleroderma Foundation Research Grant Program
The Foundation is interested in fostering the development of innovative and high quality research by new and established investigators in fields related to systemic sclerosis (SSc, scleroderma.)
Two distinct research grants are offered — the Scleroderma Foundation New Investigator Grant and the Scleroderma Foundation Established Investigator Grant.
The Scleroderma Foundation's New Investigator Grant is for new investigators who hold faculty or equivalent positions and who wish to pursue a career in research related to systemic scleroderma. This grant will support promising research that is likely to lead to individual research project grants and is designed to facilitate the entry of new investigators into this area of research. Applicants may request up to $50,000 per year for up to three years not
to exceed $150,000.
The Scleroderma Foundation's Established Investigator Grant is for established investigators both inside and outside the field of SSc research who wish to propose pilot studies to obtain preliminary data dealing with a highly innovative and/or highly relevant theme related to SSc. This grant will support pilot research that is likely to lead to more substantial research pilot grants from federal or non-federal sources. Applicants may request up to $75,000 per year for up to two years not to exceed $150,000.
The application receipt deadline is September 15th annually.
