THE FEEDING HOPE FUND FOR CLINICAL RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAM

In 2018, NEDA will be awarding a total of three research grants through the Feeding Hope Fund for Clinical Research. One grant will be awarded through the Clinical Research Grant Program ($100,000) and two grants will be awarded through the NEDA Early Career Investigator Grant Program ($50,000 each).

Clinical Research Grant Program

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is committed to providing help and hope to those affected by eating disorders. To this end, NEDA’s Feeding Hope Fund for Clinical Research aims to support projects that will improve the lives of individuals affected by eating disorders.

USE OF AWARD FUNDS

The Clinical Research Grant Program will support research projects that cover a range of research domains relevant to the treatment and prevention of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder.

In 2018, one grant of $100,000 will be awarded over a two year period ($50,000 each year). Applications will be accepted in the research areas of innovative treatment, training dissemination, and prevention.

ELIGIBILITY FOR CLINICAL RESEARCH GRANT 

Investigators who are United States citizens or lawful permanent residents conducting research at institutions within the United States at the time of submission are invited to apply. We are interested in geographic, gender, and racial diversity, and we encourage women and minorities, as well as investigators from around the U.S., to apply. The candidate’s research track record and other sources of funding will be considered when selecting awards. 

THE NEDA EARLY CAREER INVESTIGATOR GRANT Program

The goal of the NEDA Early Career Investigator Grant Program is to expand eating disorders research while drawing promising new scientists into the field. Through this grant program we hope to advance the field of eating disorders with innovative clinical research that will lead to effective treatment and sustained recovery for those suffering from eating disorders.

USE OF AWARD FUNDS

The NEDA Early Career Investigator Grant will support research projects that cover a range of research domains relevant to the treatment and prevention of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder.

Two research awards will be granted in 2018.

These awards will be for a total of $50,000 each over a two year period ($25,000 each year per grant).

Applications will be accepted in the areas of innovative treatment research, training dissemination research, and prevention research.

ELIGIBILITY FOR EARLY CAREER INVESTIGATOR GRANT

Any junior investigator early in their career working in the field of eating disorders in the United States who has completed their training and has a post graduate degree or beyond is eligible. Trainees, e.g. (students, grad students) are not eligible. Applicants should be within 7 years of completion of training, but exceptions to this will be considered on a case by case basis. We are interested in geographic, gender, and racial diversity, and we encourage women and minorities, as well as investigators from around the U.S., to apply.
