Assistive Technology Grants (ALS | worldwide)
The Assistive Technology Grants funded by the ALS Association support efforts to develop or adapt technologies that can help maintain or improve the health, independence, and/or quality of life of people living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Given that technologies at different stages of development could receive funding through this opportunity, successful project outcomes could include advancement of the technology, adaptation of existing finished products to the particular needs or requirements of the ALS community, or deployment of the technology to a meaningful number of end users. For most recipients, this award will constitute a minority of the funding needed to reach commercial launch, but the Association’s support should catalyze follow-on funding that will enable further development or commercialization activities.
Individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research may apply as the principal investigator. Applicants do not need to have a scientific background in ALS research, so we encourage collaboration between implementation science, quality improvement, and health services researchers and ALS clinician-scientists. Established investigators, early career investigators, and investigators from outside the ALS field are all encouraged to apply. This funding provides $400,000 USD (including 10% indirect costs) for 2 years.
Letters of intent are due on July 13, 2023. Full applications are by invitation only and are due on September 7, 2023.
