The Cleft Palate Foundation (CPF) has funded research related to cleft and craniofacial anomalies since 1989 and has proudly awarded over half a million dollars in research funding to date. 

Research grants are each awarded for a period of one year and range from $5,000 to $24,000 in funding.  Many researchers find that CPF grants provide necessary seed money for projects and serve as an impetus for future funding from larger granting agencies.

The upcoming deadline for submitting research grant applications is
February 1, 2016.
