Grants to USA, Canada, and International scientists affiliated with universities, hospitals, and nonprofit or for-profit research institutions to carry out research related to prenatal and maternal health. Priority areas of interest include pregnancy-related disorders, maternal morbidity and mortality, and developmental origins of infant health.
March of Dimes is committed to advancing the health of all moms and babies, and that involves seeking answers through a diverse research portfolio. MOD is actively seeking applications for research grant funding that involve translational and actionable science that will lead directly to interventions or preventions. The goal is to turn observations in the laboratory, clinic, and community into interventions, therapeutics, and diagnostics that improve the health of moms and babies. MOD is also committed to learning about differences in populations integrated into key research areas.

Multidisciplinary collaborations including those with community based partners that engage populations, providers, and policymakers, are encouraged. Please note, the research:
