Deadline to Submit Application is Friday, August 28, 2020

The NVA invites research proposals investigating the efficacy of medical treatments for Generalized Vulvodynia. The amount of this award is $50,000. Studies of mindfulness, cognitive behavior therapy or other psychological therapies are not eligible for this award.

If you are interested in applying, please send an email to Phyllis Mate (pmate@nva.org) by Monday, July 20, 2020 that includes a brief (1-2 paragraph) summary of your proposed study’s design and objectives. Once we have received this information, we will email you a full application to complete and submit by Friday, August 28, 2020.

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).
