The FSR Small Research Grants program aims to support smaller scale or pilot research projects which can be supported either singularly by FSR or through a partnership with additional funders. The FSR will award a limited number of grants with a maximum amount of $25,000. Smaller singular or partnership grants are preferred but level of potential impact upon the field is the most significant driver. Proposals are encouraged from investigators across a variety of disciplines as submitting projects will directly and significantly impact sarcoidosis research.


Small Research Grant proposals are accepted 2 times per year via FSR online grant portal.

Applicants should complete the application below. Justification for the proposed work can be provided through literature citations, data from other sources, or from investigator-generated data, when available.FSR’s small grant proposals to be funded by the Foundation are “field-initiated” in the sense that they are not submitted in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP). Our larger grant awards are aligned with our Scientific Research Agenda; however, the Small Grants program will accept all proposals including ones that fall under the Foundation’s general mission of advancing sarcoidosis research by addressing gaps within the space.
