The Duke Funding Alert newsletter, published every Monday, provides information on all new and updated grants and fellowships added to the database during the prior week. This listserv is restricted to members of the Duke community.
Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB) provides grants to high-performing U.S.-based departments of ophthalmology and to their high-potential investigators.
RPB accepts grant applications twice a year, January and July. Application forms must be requested by the chair of the department of ophthalmology or the department's grant coordinator. Departments of ophthalmology must have an RPB Unrestricted/Challenge (U/C) Grant in order to apply for individual grants, and only permanent, full-time department chairs are eligible to apply for any RPB grants. Chairs may nominate only one candidate per grant category per cycle.
Nomination forms are required for all individual awards. For the January 10 deadline, nomination forms are due no later than December 15 (or December 22 for the Low Vision Research Award); for the July 1 deadline, nomination forms are due no later than June 15.
