FRAXA Grants and Fellowships Program

Funding Agency:
Fragile X Research Foundation

Each year, FRAXA funds $1 million or more in medical research aimed at finding specific treatments and ultimately a cure for Fragile X syndrome. Our goal is to bring practical treatment into current medical practice as quickly as possible; so preference is given to 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. Our #1 priority is to fund clinical trials, while still continuing to support worthwhile translational research and other early-stage work.

Clinicial Trial applications are accepted at any time. The application deadline for FRAXA Fellowships is February 1 each year, and new fellowships are announced in early April.


Deadline: Feb. 1, 2020
