GUIDELINES FOR RESEARCH PROPOSAL SUBMISSION
GRANT AWARD: A maximum of $50,000, including up to 10% for institutional overhead, will be awarded to each grantee.
GRANT DURATION: The expected project duration is one year.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: August 2, 2013.
FUNDING RESTRICTIONS: All grants must be used exclusively for research and research equipment, not capital expenditures, administrative costs, publication costs or travel costs.
FORMAT: In addition to the Grant Application itself, grant requests must also include (a) an NIH Biosketch for the principal investigator, and (b) a detailed budget with a breakdown of costs into personnel, supplies, equipment, contractual services, and “other” lines, with a description and justification for each item.
SUBMISSION: The research proposal may be submitted by mail or email. If submitting by email, please use Microsoft Word or a .pdf file attachment.
REVIEW: The proposals will be reviewed by the Migraine Research Foundation’s Medical Advisory Board (MAB). If any member of the MAB has a conflict of interest with a particular proposal or proposer, he will abstain from the review process on that proposal. Once the review is complete, the MAB will advise MRF’s Board of Directors, which will make the final decision about the awarding of grants. MRF expects to notify grant recipients by the end of the year.
