The National Headache Foundation supports research in the field of headache and pain as part of our mission, which also includes offering education and information to headache sufferers. The list below consists of research projects supported by the NHF through our grants program.

2019 Research Grant Proposals

The Foundation intends to award one or more research grants in its 2019 funding cycle to the best proposal(s) submitted by January 15, 2019. Experienced researchers and research organizations are encouraged to apply for an award by describing a worthy project in 12 type-written pages or less, including a description of the project, methods, statistical plan, key personnel to be involved, and a proposed budget detailing how the funds will be used to complete said project in a timely fashion. Brief letters of support from collaborators and bio-sketches of key personnel will be accepted as supplemental documents to the proposal.

In the past years, the NHF has awarded grants of up to $100,000 including the 2018 funding cycle. At the time of this announcement, the amount of total funding that will be made available for 2019 has not been finalized. The foundation intends to award a grant of up to $100,000 for 2019 but reserves the right to award more than one grant depending on final funding amounts. Furthermore, if the proposals submitted warrant such consideration, the foundation may also choose to award multiple smaller grants (less than $100,000) to maximize results from our research funding. This will all be at the discretion of the research steering committee whose decisions are final.

Proposals should be received in complete form, as described above by 5:00 pm (CST) on January 15, 2019, will be considered for funding.

Proposals should be sent to [email protected] or mailed to:

Ms. Mary Franklin
Executive Director
