Cleft Palate Foundation Funding Opportunities

ACPAACPA News, Family Services

The Cleft Palate Foundation (CPF) is pleased to announce the opening of their 2017 Research Grant season. This year, CPF will fund five grants totaling $54,000. Grant proposals must be submitted online by January 15, 2017, and award winners will be announced in April 2017. CPF grants are often key to launching new projects that are later supported by larger funding institutions. CPF thanks the generous donors who continue to make their research grants available to cleft/craniofacial investigators.
