Grants &


CABRI is fully dedicated to actively researching new treatments for rare diseases. To support this endeavor, we offer research grants to specific principal investigators at academic research institutions who have a plan to extend the clinical or pre-clinical development of our mission.

Eligible applicants include domestic and international researchers alike, as well as domestic and international group collaborations. Research grants are open to investigators of any career stage who are capable of leading an independent research study and supervising personnel. Funds must be used solely for research. CABRI does not fund excessive institutional overhead costs.

Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

To apply for a CABRI research grant, please use our Research Proposal Application.

Our undergraduate grant assists undergraduate students with their work in research laboratories that align with CABRI’s mission. Undergraduate lab employment often presents a financial burden if the position is unpaid. CABRI’s undergraduate grant includes a stipend for the student employee and a budget for supplies.


As part of our commitment to the families of individuals suffering with rare diseases, CABRI provides scholarships to college-bound students who have lost a parent to SNUC.
