Lily’s Fund Grace Grants announcement

The Lily’s Fund Grace Grants will provide financial support for projects in epilepsy related research.  Grace Grants applications should propose innovative research that, if successful, will enrich our understanding of epilepsy, advance new epilepsy treatments, identify new diagnostic tools, or otherwise improve quality of life for those who live with epilepsy.  A priority will be given to new projects that spark new thinking and open new avenues of inquiry into the mechanisms of epilepsy.

The Lily’s Fund Grace Grants provide up to $100,000 ($50,000 per year) over two years.  No indirect costs may be charged to this award.

Applications may be submitted by any UW-Madison faculty or academic staff member(s) who have the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out meaningful epilepsy-related research.

There is no limit on the number of applicants per department. The deadline for full proposals for this internal competition is Noon on Thursday, September 3, 2015.  Please review the attachment for complete application information. Ten complete paper copies and one electronic copy must be delivered to Tracy Cabot in the School of Medicine and Public Health Dean’s Office, 4113 Health Sciences Learning Center, for the internal competition.
