The Research Grant Program was created in 2022 by the United Cerebral Palsy Research Committee (URC). This program awards grants that advance clinical and translational research and focus on knowledge translation to advance the state of the science, bridging the gap between research and care to transform the lives of children with cerebral palsy and related neurodevelopmental disabilities.
In honor of National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day, the Research Committee will open the 2023 grant cycle on March 25, 2023 with awards up to $20,000 for clinical and translational research that focuses on knowledge translation. While we welcome applications on any topics relevant to cerebral palsy and related neurodevelopmental disabilities from researchers and clinicians in the U.S., the URC gives preference to (1) those that are focused on early diagnosis and early treatment of cerebral palsy and to (2) research applicants from or collaborating with UCP’s affiliates. Both biomedical and therapy-focused studies are welcomed.
The 2023 application cycle has closed. Stay tuned for another cycle to begin March 25, 2024.
