The International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) seeks proposals from researchers investigating the nosology, etiology, pathogenesis, treatment, or other topics relevant to essential tremor.

The grants aim to stimulate inquiry into essential tremor and to provide support to projects that are innovative and give promise of receiving more substantial support from NIH and/or other sources if sufficient preliminary information can be obtained from projects supported by the IETF, according to a media release from the IETF.

The scope of the proposal should be appropriate for a one-year funding period with the possibility of being renewed for a second year. Additional project support beyond the first year of funding requires a second proposal and explanation for additional funding, to be reviewed in competition with all proposals submitted during that funding cycle. In general, each IETF research grant award will not exceed $25,000. Institutional indirect costs will not be provided.

The Grant Guideline, Application, and Conflict of Interest Policy and Questionnaire are available for download from the IETF website.

Submit all completed applications, including the conflict of interest policy questionnaire, to IETF Executive Director Patrick McCartney at [email protected].
