Research Grants

Funding Agency:
Glaucoma Foundation

The Glaucoma Foundation offers grants to researchers striving to improve the lives of glaucoma patients through novel innovations and scientific advances. The areas of current focus for TGF’s Grant Research program are exfoliation syndrome, exfoliation glaucoma and intraocular pressure-independent mechanisms of optic nerve degeneration in glaucoma. Examples of research that may be considered range from basic science to clinical interventions, such as genetics and genomic medicine, disease modeling, assessment of ocular perfusion, artificial intelligence, and clinical research. The deadline for grant applications is March 1, 2024.  A priority will be given to novel proposals with a viable study hypothesis that can lead to impactful results that are fundable at the NIH level. Initial grant funding for a one-year period is for up to $60,000; a grantee is permitted to apply for a grant renewal of up to $60,000. A renewal grant is a one year grant based upon research findings from the initial research.
