The PLGA Fund from the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation supports researchers worldwide working on pediatric low-grade glioma and astrocytoma. Novel concepts/hypotheses are encouraged, and priority is given to projects that involve collaboration between institutions and investigators. Eligible projects include basic science, translational and clinical trial initiatives, as well as survivorship/outcomes studies. Project funding is awarded over one, two or three-year periods depending on the scope and complexity of project. Investigators in the early years of their careers are encouraged to apply. There are no deadlines and applicants are encourage to submit a "letter of intent" at any time.
