ACPA is pleased to announce the opening of the 2018 Research Grant season.  This year, ACPA will be offering four grants totaling $20,000. Grant proposals must be submitted online by February 1, 2018 and award winners will be announced in May 2018.  ACPA grants may be key to launching new projects that are later supported by larger funding institutions.

Research grants offered for 2018 funding include:

  • Subtelny Speech Research Grant
    One 1-year grant for $5,000. This grant promotes research related to effective speech and language pathology treatment modalities and strategies for patients with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies. The grant is open to senior and junior investigators.  Priority will be given to clinical research, but basic research proposals will also be accepted.
  • Subtelny Orthodontic Research Grant
    One 1-year grant for $5,000. This grant promotes research related to effective orthodontic treatment modalities and strategies for patients with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies. The grant is open to senior and junior investigators.  Priority will be given to clinical research, but basic research proposals will also be accepted.
  • Paul W. Black, MD Grants for Emerging Researchers
    Two 1-year grants for $5,000 each. The purposes of these grants are to develop young scientific investigators who are committed to cleft/craniofacial research and to encourage research on problems related to the diagnosis and treatment of cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies. These grants are available to junior investigators only.

Thank you to the generous donors who continue to make our grants available to investigators in cleft and craniofacial research.  Please visit the website for more details on criteria, terms and condition and to begin your grant proposal submission.  Contact Stephanie Williamson with any questions.
