FRAXA Grants and Fellowships Program

Funding Agency:
Fragile X Research Foundation

FRAXA plans to fund a generous number of research grants and fellowships this coming year. Our mission is to find specific treatments and ultimately a cure for Fragile X syndrome. We aim to bring practical treatment into current medical practice as quickly as possible; we prioritize projects that have a clear practical application and the results of which will be shared in a timely fashion.

FRAXA awards two categories of grants:

  1. Clinicial Trial applications are accepted at any time. Our #1 priority is to fund clinical trials, while still continuing to support worthwhile translational research and other early-stage work.
  2. FRAXA Fellowship applications are due on February 1 each year, and new fellowships are announced in early April.
