FSHD Society Grant Portal
The FSHD Society offers investigator-initiated research grants to support basic, translational and clinical-based research in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD). The application process begins with the submission of a brief Letter of Intent (LOI) describing the aims and objectives of the proposal. LOIs are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Once approved, investigators will be invited to submit a full proposal for consideration and review by the FSHD Society's Scientific Advisory Board (SAB).
- Letters of Intent (LOI) due by Sunday, June 20th, 2021
- LOIs are reviewed on an ongoing basis, so get your in early!
- Grant proposals (by invitation) due by Thursday, July 1st, 2021
- Award recipients will be notified by the start of the 4th quarter.
Please note that preference will be given to postdoctoral trainees, clinical fellows and younger faculty establishing their first independent laboratory (less than 5 years). More established researchers should allow their postdocs and fellows to apply for these awards directly, while providing mentorship and guidance for a successful outcome to the proposal. The FSHD Society will no longer support pre-doctoral training fellowships.
