Applications for Project Grants 2013
Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s Research Foundation has a strong ongoing commitment to funding high quality research into the causes, prevention and cure of cerebral palsy.
Since our Research Grant Program began in 2006, we have awarded over $5.8 million into supporting 72 projects across Australia, USA, Africa, Europe and the UK. In addition to this, we have made a commitment to supporting critical cerebral palsy conferences held globally.
All of this work has lead to a significant and dramatic increase in research funding and the Research Foundation is proud of this growth. Before the establishment of the Research Grants Program, less than $1million per year had been invested nationally into this research area.
The Research Foundation of Cerebral Palsy Alliance has now opened its call for applications for its 2013 Grants Program. Applications close 30 August 2013.
