Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation: Research Awards (multiple opportunities)

Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is dedicated to finding cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. To achieve this mission, the foundation supports both investigator-initiated research, and specific requests for proposals where the Foundation identifies the scientific scope of interest. Regardless of the funding mechanism, we fund to our research priorities, which are outlined in the Challenges in IBD Research publication.

The foundation supports research projects that range across the research continuum, including basic, translational, and clinical research. The following mechanisms are open to applications:

Career Development Award
Amount: Up to $102,000 per year up to three years
Career Development Awards are mentored awards intended to facilitate the development of individuals with research potential to prepare for a career of independent basic research investigation in the area of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Senior Research Award
Amount: $130,000 per year up to three years
This award provides established researchers with funds to generate sufficient preliminary data to become competitive for funds from other sources such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation strives to ensure that each research application receives an objective, fair, equitable, and timely review. We are convinced that high-quality, unbiased reviews benefit the advancement of health sciences research.
