Apply for a Grant

As the world’s largest private source of funding for food allergy research, FARE provides grants to qualified researchers at major medical centers worldwide. FARE-sponsored research includes clinical trials of promising therapies, as well as studies that answer crucial questions about the causes, epidemiology, and economic and social impact of food allergies.

FARE research grants are reviewed and awarded throughout the year to established investigators who hold an MD, PhD or equivalent and are engaged in food allergy research. Eligibility is not restricted by citizenship or geography.

All applications are peer-reviewed by FARE’s Research Advisory Board.

If you are a scientist committed to solving the clinical and scientific problems associated with food allergy, we encourage you to apply for funding.
