Research Funding

National Glaucoma Research (NGR)

Deadline:  October 30, 2013

This notice is to inform you of the deadline for grant proposals to National Glaucoma Research (NGR), a program of BrightFocus Foundation. Applications for 2014 awards are due on October 30, 2013.

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.

Eligibility is limited to non-profit institutions, or government research facilities.
