The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for this disease and to improving care for sarcoidosis patients. Since its establishment in 2000, FSR has fostered over $6 million in sarcoidosis-specific research efforts and has worked diligently to provide resources to thousands.

The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) Cardiac Sarcoidosis Grant aims to support research being conducted in cardiac sarcoidosis. The project, which can be supported either singularly by FSR or through a partnership with additional funders, is open to all investigators wishing to apply. 

The FSR will award one grant, totaling $100,000, over a three-year period. 

In assessing applications, we look for strength in overall strategy, methodology, and analysis. Proposals are encouraged from investigators across a variety of disciplines, submitting projects which will lead to direct and significant impact upon cardiac sarcoidosis research. Please make sure to include any literature, data, and previous research that is relevant to your proposal.

Eligibility

  Proposals for the Cardiac Sarcoidosis Grant must be for research in the cardiac sarcoidosis space. Proposals for activities other than research, or proposals for research studies focused on areas other than cardiac sarcoidosis, are not eligible. 


  Principal Investigators (PIs), Co-PIs, and Sub-Is, must submit bio-sketches in the NIH format as well as any letters of support from anyone collaborating on the proposal. The PI must be affiliated with a college, university, or a non-profit research facility that is willing to serve as the administering organization if the grant is awarded. The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research does not award grants directly to individuals.

  Proposals are accepted from the U.S. and internationally, however all proposals must be submitted in English and budgets must be proposed in U.S. Dollars.


Restrictions

  The FSR Cardiac Sarcoidosis Grant budgets are limited to $100,000 over a two-year period and may not include indirect cost charges per FSR’s policy. Budgets that include research lab equipment that uses over 50% of the proposed budget must include justification and a description of how that piece of equipment will be used after the grant period is over.

  All awardees must submit bi-annual progress reports to the FSR. Bi-annual reports are due six months after the grant period start date, and every six months thereafter that the grant period is active for.

  Projects proposed may not exceed three years in duration.

  If a PI has previously held another grant from FSR within the last year, it is up to the discretion of the reviewers and the Foundation if another proposal should be eligible.

  PIs and Co-PIs may not submit more than one application for this RFP.


DEADLINES

  FSR Cardiac Sarcoidosis Grant proposals will be accepted until Tuesday, August 6th, 2024.

  These grant proposals to be funded by the Foundation are “field-initiated” in the sense that they are not submitted in response to a direct Request for Proposal (RFP). Our larger grant awards are aligned with our Scientific Research Agenda. The FSR Cardiac Sarcoidosis Grant will accept all proposals including those that fall under the Foundation's general mission of advancing cardiac sarcoidosis research by addressing gaps within the space.

  Any questions may be addressed to the FSR Research Team:
 

  • Tricha Shivas - Chief Strategy Officer - tricha@stopsarcoidosis.org
  • Tim Legenzoff - Research Manager - tim@stopsarcoidosis.org
