Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust (CART): Exploratory and Developmental Alzheimer’s Research Grants
Deadline: Letter of Intent Due December 1, 2023
Category: Alzheimer's Disease,
Founded in 1995 by Roger Ackerman, a Rotarian in Sumter, SC, the CART Fund (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) is a nonprofit grassroots organization that provides “seed” money for cutting-edge, high-impact research grants to help find a treatment or cure for Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
The fund invites proposals to encourage exploratory and developmental AD research projects within the United States by providing support for the early and conceptual plans of those projects that may not yet be supported by extensive preliminary data but have the potential to advance biomedical research substantially. Proposals should be distinct from those projects designed to increase knowledge in a well-established area unless intended to extend previous discoveries toward new directions or applications. This is for new projects only.
Applications may encompass a project period of up to two years with a combined budget for direct costs of up to $300,000. No indirect costs are allowed.
To be eligible, applicants must be full-time faculty (or the equivalent status) at U.S.-based public and private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories.
Letters of intent are due December 1, 2023, and upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full grant application, due February 9, 2024.
Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
