Freidrich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA)

General Research Grants fund research that advances understanding of FA neurodegeneration, advances drug discovery (especially genetic, epigentic, and protein approaches), facilitates translational or clinical research, or reduces the morbidity / mortality caused by cardiac disease in FA.

General Research Grant Subtype:
Postdoctoral Trainees and Ph.D. Students

Salaries for all those contributing to the research project (PI, postdocs, graduate students, research associates, etc.) can be requested under personnel costs in the budget of a General Research Grant application.

Additionally, FARA has an application subtype specifically for PIs requesting only salary (plus applicable benefits) to support postdoctoral trainees and Ph.D. students in their laboratory. The PI is encouraged to involve the trainee/student in the preparation of the research plan to be submitted with the application. The name and CV of the postdoctoral trainee or Ph.D. student must be included in the application.

The guidelines for General Research Grants should be followed, but the only allowable budget item is salary for the postdoctoral trainee or Ph.D. student (plus applicable benefits and tuition support) and the requested amount must not exceed the appropriate NIH stipend level.
