OPTA RESEARCH FUNDING OPPORTUNITY
The OPTA Research Committee is pleased to announce the annual call for applications for OPTA's small grant program. Projects with substantial collaboration among clinical and academic researchers will receive priority consideration during the 2017 review process.
Our small grant program typically funds smaller budget projects or partially funds larger projects. The range of requested funds in recent years has been $500 - $2800, with the highest scored projects receiving the amount of funding requested until all available money is awarded.
