Cure Glaucoma Foundation awards grants based on the merit of the proposal and on the alignment of the
research objectives with our mission.
Terms and Restrictions
- CGF grants are provided for independent basic and clinical research into all aspects of glaucoma. Grants are awarded for eligible research projects recommended by the Research Advisory Committee and approved by the CGF Board.
- Cure Glaucoma Foundation usually awards grant funding in the Spring and Summer of each year. Grants are awarded based on a review of the proposals by all members of the Research Committee. Funding for a proposal is determined not only by the merit of the proposal (including justification, plans, and budget) but also on the alignment of the research objectives with those of CGF.
- Typically, grants are awarded for a one-year period and are renewable. Although the actual funding of a grant depends on the proposed budget details, we usually award grants of about $50,000 per year. However, CGF reserves the right to change any of these details based on the merit of the proposals. Excluding renewal grants, Principal Investigators are required to wait a minimum of two years from the funded cycle before submitting a new research application for consideration.
- Funding obtained from other funding sources during the period of the grant to accomplish similar research objectives must be disclosed in a report, describing how the additional funds from the other organization will be used.
- CGF only provides funding of items directly related to the research. No indirect cost (including salary, travel, and overhead) will be supported.
- Each Principal Investigator must provide a Final Report of their research to the Cure Glaucoma Foundation within 6 weeks of the end of the granting period.
- A Principle Investigator may be asked to provide information for use by CGF in newsletters, press releases, and various online platforms.
- The Cure Glaucoma Foundation must be acknowledged in all publications including abstracts and presentations about research arising from CGF grant support. Copies of published abstracts and scientific articles must be forwarded to CGF.
