As announced at our annual meeting in Baltimore, we are now soliciting grant applications to support research in the leukodystrophies.


Applications will be accepted now through October 15, 2014.  All competitive applications will be reviewed by an expert committee for scientific merit, feasibility and potential contribution toward advancing the understanding and treatment of leukodystrophies.  The maximum $35,000.00 grant award includes up to 10% of the requested funds for indirect costs, i.e. direct costs + indirect costs = $35,000.00.  We anticipate funding one grant for up to $35,000.00 total costs (including indirect costs).  Funding will be awarded by December 31, 2014 and extend for one year.  Researchers must use the ULF Research Grant Application Template listed below and submit applications to our office electronically (office@ulf.org).  It is expected that the research supported by this grant will be presented at a future ULF Scientific meeting.
