Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers affiliated with IHEs or research institutions for studies related to uncommon forms of epilepsy. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended to support collaborative research between the investigator and rare epilepsy advocacy groups.
CURE Epilepsy’s grant programs seek to accelerate promising research leading to new treatments and cures for people living with epilepsy. CURE Epilepsy prioritizes innovative projects that address its mission, affirming CURE's core belief that the only acceptable final goal is “no seizures, no side-effects.”

Each award will be co-funded by CURE Epilepsy and one or more of the rare epilepsy advocacy groups (partners) identified in the Request For Proposals. Applications must focus on one or more of the specific rare epilepsies that are represented by each group as well as address CURE Epilepsy’s mission to cure epilepsy.
Applications must clearly identify the rare epilepsy(ies) that the research is directed towards. General priority areas for this program include:
An overarching goal of this funding mechanism is to develop resources and data that will be made available to the research community to accelerate research on rare epilepsies.
