NVA Invites Proposals for the Fall 2020 Vulvodynia Research Award

Deadline to Submit Letter of Intent is Thursday, November 5, 2020
Deadline to Submit Application is Wednesday, December 30, 2020

We are interested in funding studies on causes of, or treatments for, vestibulodynia and/or generalized vulvodynia. We have previously funded both basic science studies and controlled treatment studies.

If you are interested in applying, please send an email to Phyllis Mate (pmate@nva.org) by Thursday, November 5, 2020 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 Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

Most NVA grants are $30,000 to $40,000, but we can award up to $50,000 for controlled treatment studies. 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).
