ANRF 2023-2024 Grant Cycle Now Open

The ANRF is pleased to announce the opening of the 2023-2024 research grant application process! ANRF is calling on early-career investigators, focusing on areas such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Pediatric Rheumatology, Juvenile Arthritis, Lupus, Psoriatic Arthritis, Gout, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Scleroderma, Fibromyalgia, Uveitis, and other related Rheumatic diseases to apply for a grant.

This year the Foundation, recognizing the increased costs and demands for scientists, increased the award amount to $125,000 per year, renewable for two years.

“Being able to provide early-career funding to these researchers is at the core of who we are as an organization. While we’re gaining an understanding of the many causes of arthritis, there is still so much we have yet to uncover when it comes to treatment options. Our efforts in this space will help us find a cure for arthritis – one grant at a time,” said Emily Stormoen, ANRF Chief Executive Officer.

Last year, ANRF funded 19 scientists specializing in Scleroderma, Gout, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Psoriatic Arthritis, the most in the Foundation’s history. Since its inception, ANRF, a four-star rated charity by Charity Navigator, has funded more than 180 scientists, awarded more than 250 grants and provided more than $22 million in grant funding.

All ANRF grant applications must be submitted online no later than January 20, 2023 on ProposalCentral, accessed through Detailed information on policies and procedures, instructions and how to register as a user can also be accessed through the website.
