From Solve ME:
Solve M.E. recently opened the 2021 Ramsay Grant Program Request for Applications (RFA), which offers competitive funding for studies into myalgic encephalomyelitis (also known as chronic fatigue syndrome or ME/CFS) and Long COVID. The Ramsay Program provides much needed funding to support projects that allow investigators to develop preliminary data to compete for funding from large organizations, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The 2021 cycle has two types of grants available:
- Lab-based Research Grants, ranging from $35,000 to $55,000 for a one-year period, with the possibility of renewal for projects yielding promising results
- Data-only Grants to support studies that will analyze the data in the You + ME Registry. These have an upper limit of $10,000 for a 6 month period, with the possibility of renewal for projects yielding promising results
