Request a Grant Writer

Grants generally starting at $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International investigators at nonprofit academic, medical, or research institutions who are engaged in innovative and promising research projects that seek to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. Investigators in traditional type 1 diabetes research, as well as investigators currently working on other autoimmune diseases are encouraged to apply, provided that the proposed project focuses directly on type 1 diabetes and supports the mission of the Foundation.

The Foundation will accept novel projects that directly accelerate a cure for type 1 diabetes or inform the understanding of the disease by a related or complementary mechanism of action.

The Foundation funds a range of proposals, including basic science, fellowships and clinical trials.

Number of Grants:

On average, the Foundation typically funds 3-10 projects a year.

Estimated Size of Grant:

There is “no magic number” as to a proposal budget, rather researchers are asked to present the true number needed to support their research within the range of $10,000 to $500,000.

Term of Contract:

The Foundation is accepting applications for projects that have a term of one year. The funding year for the Foundation is from Spring 2016 – Spring 2017.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Iacocca Family Foundation accepts applications from individual investigators from the USA and internationally, at nonprofit academic, medical, or research institutions. Applicants need to provide such IRS documentation of status or the equivalent if applying from outside the United States.

NOT ELIGIBLE:
Although the Foundation recognizes that there are many worthwhile projects in the for-profit setting, the Trustees have decided to only support nonprofit entities at this time.

The Foundation does not make grants for: projects not on type 1 diabetes; research using embryonic stem cells, human fetal tissue or human embryos; buildings or capital improvements; hospital and university general fund drives; and general operating costs of hospitals, research institutes, buildings, clinical care clinics, etc.

The Foundation has a strict policy of only paying a maximum overhead of 10% indirect costs on all grants; no overhead is paid on equipment.
