There is no condition of such magnitude - yet so shrouded in myth, misinformation, and mistreatment - as migraine.

For Researchers
Request for Proposals
Grant Application

Our 2015 RFP is now closed. Sign up for our mailing list to receive information on the 2016 RFP.

The Migraine Research Foundation (MRF) and the Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) announced the opening of a joint Request for Proposals for migraine research grants on May 15, 2015. MRF is committed to discovering the causes, improving the treatments, and finding a cure, and AMD stimulates increased research specifically in the area of migraine disorders. We are looking for projects that will help sufferers by advancing our ability to understand and treat migraine. As a result, we seek to provide seed-money grants for projects that are important, achievable, and innovative that will ultimately lead to better treatment and quality of life for sufferers of migraine and migraine disorders.

While we welcome all proposals relevant to basic or clinical migraine research, we are particularly interested in translational projects and those related to migraine variants, childhood migraine, and chronic migraine.

For information on the application process, go to Request for Proposals. The application deadline is July 31, 2015. If you have any questions, call us or email us



Notice: The American Academy of Neurology is now accepting applications for their 2016 Clinical Research Training Fellowship program and there is one non-disease specific opportunity available to migraine researchers. Read more here.
