Research Grant Program
The Glut1 Deficiency Foundation’s Research Grant Program offers funding for research directly related to Glut1 Deficiency and associated disorders. These grants, typically in the range of $10,000 to $50,000, are intended to fund initial research hypotheses that have not been fully explored. Results from this initial research can form the basis to apply for larger governmental or private grants.
Research Grant Awardees are required to give updates on their work throughout the grant cycle and encouraged to present their findings at our biannual conference.
