Grants to USA researchers for innovative eating disorder research. Funding is intended to improve the lives of those suffering from eating disorders through research on prevention, treatment, and training dissemination. Both new and established researchers are invited to apply.

Innovative Treatment Research consists of projects that aim to develop new and innovative treatment interventions or examine the acceptability, feasibility and initial efficacy of novel treatment approaches for eating disorders.

Feeding Hope Fund awards in this category may support pilot studies that would be expected to contribute to larger scientific investigations of novel interventions.

Treatment Dissemination Research aims to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of disseminating and implementing existing empirically supported interventions for eating disorders. Feeding Hope funds for this category may be used to promote treatment dissemination and implementation, but outcome assessment is required. Outcomes may include feasibility and efficacy of clinician performance and patient clinical outcomes.

Prevention research aims to identify and assess risk for eating disorders, and to develop interventions for preventing or ameliorating high-risk behaviors, the occurrence of an eating disorder, or its progression. Prevention research also includes research studies to establish health promotion recommendations.

This category of research includes studies that aim to:
- Identify modifiable risk and protective factors for eating disorders;
- Develop methods for screening and identification of markers for those at risk for onset or progression of eating disorders;
- Develop and evaluate interventions to promote health for individuals at risk for eating disorders;
- Utilize and/or develop methodological and statistical procedures for assessing risk and measuring the effects of preventive interventions.

Clinical Research Grant Program

The Clinical Research Grant Program will support research projects that cover a range of research domains relevant to the treatment and prevention of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder.

In 2018, one grant of $100,000 will be awarded over a two year period ($50,000 each year). Applications will be accepted in the research areas of innovative treatment, training dissemination, and prevention.

The NEDA Early Career Investigator Grant Program

The goal of the NEDA Early Career Investigator Grant Program is to expand eating disorders research while drawing promising new scientists into the field. Through this grant program NEDA hopes to advance the field of eating disorders with innovative clinical research that will lead to effective treatment and sustained recovery for those suffering from eating disorders.

The NEDA Early Career Investigator Grant will support research projects that cover a range of research domains relevant to the treatment and prevention of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa. and binge eating disorder.

Two research awards will be awarded in 2018. These awards will be for a total of $50,000 each over a two year period ($25,000 each year per grant).
