Grants of up to $50,000 to USA and Canada nonprofit organizations, institutions, and associations for projects to benefit and serve individuals affected by spinal cord diseases and injuries, including veterans. Funding is intended for projects that have the potential to provide broad-based educational opportunities. Potential replication of proposals and effective dissemination plans are key elements of funded projects.
The Education Foundation is focused on funding educational projects that benefit and serve individuals with SCI/D, their families and caregivers. These projects should be designed to improve the quality of life for individuals with SCI/D, educate consumers about the consequences of and complications associated with SCI/D, improve the knowledge and skills of SCI/D health care professionals and to prevent the occurrence and complications of new SCI/D.
The Education Foundation provides funding in six project categories:
Each grant project and conference must include at least one person living with a SCI/D, MS or ALS in the development, implementation and evaluation of the project. This individual, who should be described as the SCI/D Advocate, will provide insights and support in assuring that the project has a positive impact on the target audience. For conference grant applications, this person should be identified as part of the planning committee. For project grants, this person should be included in the narrative under key personnel.
