The Migraine Research Foundation, in partnership with the Association of Migraine Disorders, has issued a Request for Proposals for migraine research projects.
Seed grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to basic and clinical projects that may lead to better treatment and quality of life for sufferers of migraine disorders. MRF is committed to discovering the causes of migraine disease and improving its treatments, and AMD has a particular interest in better understanding migraine variants. Through the RFP, the two organizations are seeking projects that will help sufferers by advancing the ability to understand and treat migraine. Grant funds must be used exclusively for research or directly related to research equipment. Capital expenditures, administrative costs (including IRB approval), institutional overhead, publication expenses, and travel costs will not be funded.
To be eligible, applicants must be considered tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
