DSF Research Grants
DSF’s Research Grant Program offers funding for research directly related to Dravet syndrome and associated disorders. These grants fund initial research hypotheses that have not been fully explored. The results extracted from this type of research will help bring untested research to the point that it can qualify for larger governmental funding. Research applications are judged principally on novelty of the hypotheses, innovative approaches with a direct relevance and application to Dravet syndrome and related epilepsies, scientific quality, strength of approach, and likelihood of success. Research Grant Awardees are required to give updates on their work throughout the grant cycle and present their findings at our annual Research Roundtable meeting.

Due to the anticipated volume of applications in 2017, we highly encourage the submission of a Letter of Intent prior to full application. Beginning in 2018, a letter of intent will be required for full application invitations.
