International FA Support Grants

Background

The Fanconi Anemia Research Fund (FARF) is the world leader in advancing research for better treatments and a cure for Fanconi anemia (FA). Founded in 1989 by parents Lynn and David Frohnmayer, FARF has supported more than 230 grants to 74 institutions and 150+ investigators worldwide. Over the last 30 years, our outstanding donors have enabled us to fund $23 million in research grants. Our mission is to find better treatments and a cure for Fanconi anemia and to provide education and support services to affected families worldwide.

Although FARF is based in the United States, FA research, families, and support organizations span the entire globe. To strengthen the efforts of our partners in the international FA community, FARF has established the International FA Support Grant program.

FARF will award up to $10,000 for one-year projects to international FA support organizations or individuals wishing to establish support organizations internationally. These awards occur annually and require submission of a full application by the indicated due date.
