Funding Opportunities

Apply for a Grant

Our innovative funding models are designed to support rigorous scientific investigation and drive progress toward treatments and the discovery of a cure. Learn more about current grant opportunities and the NBTS grant review process.

Currently, the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) does not have any open applications for funding. However, NBTS welcomes researchers to share ideas that could eventually become proposals for grant funding.

If you wish to discuss a potential proposal, please send a letter (one page) with your idea to Clair Meehan, Associate Director of Research Programs, at Upon receipt of your letter, our scientific team will review and respond.

Federal Funding Opportunities

The United States government provides grant-funding opportunities through multiple agencies, departments, and institutions. While, most brain tumor researchers are familiar with opportunities through the National Cancer Institute (NCI), fewer are familiar with the other opportunities through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – like the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) – or through the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program, which includes the Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program (PRCRP). National Brain Tumor Society and our community of brain tumor advocates work diligently to ensure these programs continue and grow every year.
