Since the launch of the Research Grant Program in 1994, the IOCDF has awarded over $5.9 million in grants to support scientific research. We are able to offer the Breakthrough Awards because of the generosity of an anonymous donor, and the Young Investigator Awards are supported by the many thousands of individual donors who contribute to the IOCDF's Research Grant Fund.

Please refer any questions regarding eligibility, the application process, or the Research Grant Program to Will Sutton, IOCDF Research Coordinator.
