BrightFocus  provides research funds for U.S. domestic as well as international researchers pursuing pioneering research with relevance to the prevention and treatment of glaucoma.

The maximum award value of the NGR Standard Award is US $100,000, payable over two years.

Preference is made for exciting, cutting-edge type projects that would not, at their present stage, be competitive for large government or industry awards. Typically these awards are made to junior investigators, or to more established investigators who are proposing particularly innovative research.
