APFED HOPE Pilot Grant

Funding Agency:
American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders

The APFED HOPE Pilot Grant was established to allow investigators from a variety of disciplines to initiate new projects relevant to eosinophil-associated diseases (EADs). Successful applications will focus on the development of new ideas which are likely to lead to future external funding. The grant may be used for the purchase of supplies and services directly related to the approved research endeavors. Funds may also be directed to the salaries of technical personnel and other direct expenses as necessary for the completion of the research project. Funds may not be used for institutional indirect costs or to acquire administrative or clerical support, or investigator salary.

The 2024 APFED HOPE Pilot Grant has been established to foster the development of new projects relevant to eosinophil-associated disease, excluding nasal polyposis. Investigators from a variety of disciplines are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will focus on the development of new ideas which are likely to lead to future external funding and align with APFED’s research priorities of improved diagnostics or therapeutics for eosinophil-associated diseases, excluding nasal polyposis.

The deadline to submit a Letter of Intent is March 13, 2024. Full proposals are due on April 26, 2024.
