Grant Application Process

The Job Research Foundation is offering grant funding for researchers who are interested in researching the causes of, and treatments for, Job Syndrome. The Foundation’s goal is to help advance research to find a cure for Job Syndrome. In the short term, we hope the research will improve the treatments for patients suffering from Job Syndrome.

For the remainder of the 2018 calendar year, the Foundation will award two 2-year grants of up to $200,000 each, and two 2-year grants of up to $50,000 each to qualified grantees. Special Consideration will be given to research focused on Job Syndrome and Pulmonary complications due to Job Syndrome, and therapies to help them. It is anticipated that these grants will be available on an annual basis for new applicants. Previous applicants can apply in subsequent years to extend their research.

The submission deadline for all grant applications is November 15, 2018. Grants will be awarded by December 17, 2018. All grant proposals will be reviewed by the Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board. Any conflicts of interest will be disclosed in the review minutes and will be reported on grant approvals.

The timeline for the approval of grants is as follows:

July-November 2018: Required documents due and all applications completed

November 2018: Advisory Board application review

December 2018: grants disbursed
