For more than 40 years, Glaucoma Research Foundation has been the premiere organization in glaucoma research funding.
Shaffer Grants for Innovative Glaucoma Research are $50,000, one-year grants awarded to scientists and clinicians to fund projects that support new high-impact clinical, epidemiological and laboratory research based on our strategic research goals.
Researchers interested in applying for a Shaffer Grant must first submit a Preliminary Proposal. The online application is accepted annually from June 1 until July 15 and can be accessed during that time frame here: https://glaucoma.smapply.org/
Applicants will be notified about the status of their proposals by September and those approved to submit a full grant application will receive further instructions.
Grant applicants must possess a graduate degree, not have received a Shaffer Grant within the prior three years, and agree to acknowledge Glaucoma Research Foundation in papers and abstracts resulting from Glaucoma Research Foundation funded research.
Glaucoma Research Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or applications from for profit corporations. Applications sent to our office will not be reviewed or returned.
