INFORMATION ON 2021 GRANT APPLICATION DEADLINES WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE SOON
We are committed to building the most comprehensive grant program for funding DIPG research. To achieve this goal, we are now offering three types of grants:
- Fellowship: designed to encourage outstanding scientists to choose a career involving DIPG research.
- New Investigator: funding newly independent DIPG researchers in establishing new DIPG research labs OR funding established researchers (who have not previously conducted brain tumor research) to encourage them to start DIPG research.
- Research: supporting the work of existing DIPG researchers by providing three years of funding at $200,000 per year.
The ChadTough Defeat DIPG grants are intended to incentivize novel approaches and spark innovation to find a cure for the deadliest pediatric brain cancer, DIPG. It is no easy task. But we are confident that by working together with the passionate doctors and researchers focused on making progress on this disease, children with DIPG will finally be able to look forward to a bright future.
Research is the key
In many respects, DIPG and other forms of pediatric brain cancer are still a mystery. Your donations fund important research to help discover this disease’s weaknesses.
