Our Partners’ Research Grant Opportunities

Partners of Child Neurology Foundation Research Grants and Awards

The Child Neurology Foundation (CNF) is proud to partner with outstanding organizations from every area of the child neurology community that are dedicated to supporting and/or conducting the necessary research that will advance treatments and cures of pediatric neurologic disorders.

NINDS supports and conducts research, both basic and clinical, on the normal and diseased nervous system, fosters the training of investigators in the basic and clinical neurosciences, and seeks better understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of neurological disorders.

Approximately 90% of the overall budget of NINDS is used to fund extramural research through a variety of funding mechanisms. Each year, NINDS establishes funding strategy based on the appropriations received from Congress. www.ninds.nih.gov/funding
