NVA Invites Proposals for the Fall 2019 NVA Research Award

Deadline to Submit Letter of Intent is Friday, September 13, 2019
Deadline to Submit Application is Monday, December 2, 2019

The NVA is seeking research proposals on the causes and treatment of vulvodynia. We are especially interested in studies that may shed light on underlying pathophysiological mechanisms.

If you are interested in applying, please send an email to Phyllis Mate (pmate@nva.org) by Friday, September 13, 2019 that includes a brief (1-2 paragraph) summary of your proposed study’s design and objectives. Once we have received this information from you, we will email you a full application to complete and submit by Monday, December 2, 2019.

Most NVA grants are $30,000 but the maximum amount of this grant is $40,000. We require confirmation that all funds will be applied to direct research costs, not institutional costs. If you’ve previously applied and/or received grant support from the NVA, you are still eligible to apply. Summaries of studies that NVA has funded to date can be viewed on NVA’s web site.

We welcome correspondence about potential projects. To discuss your proposal, please contact Phyllis Mate via email (pmate@nva.org).
