Research projects with the potential to impact a large number of children as well as research projects that address severe problems affecting relatively few children will be considered.
The Fund seeks to maintain a portfolio of grants with a balance of both domestic and international research.
The Fund supports clinical/translational pediatric research.
Emphasis is placed on projects with potential findings that would be clinically applicable in a relatively short period of time for the prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment of pediatric medical problems.
The Fund's priorities are reviewed regularly to ensure that the mission of improving the health of children worldwide is promoted through high-quality research.
Historically, the Fund has supported both domestic and international research with a particular emphasis on the potential to benefit children.
The Principal Investigator is expected to be qualified in terms of education and experience, maintain an active role in the project, and take full responsibility for its successful completion.
Students may be employed as technical support personnel but may not apply as Principal Investigators.
Amounts awarded and time periods vary depending on the specific needs of each proposal
There are no citizenship or visa restrictions.
