Since 1989 the Cleft Palate Foundation (CPF) has funded research related to cleft and craniofacial anomalies. To date, CPF has awarded over half a million dollars in research funding.
The grants range from $5,000 to $10,000 and each is awarded for a period of one year. Many researchers have found that the CPF grants provide the seed money for projects that will serve as an impetus for future funding from larger granting agencies.
The application deadline to be considered for 2015 research grants is February 15, 2015. The application will be posted in early November 2014.
