The Gund-Harrington Scholar Award supports innovative research efforts that could prevent, treat or cure blindness.
The Gund-Harrington Scholar Award is part of the Gund-Harington Initiative for Fighting Blindness.
The awards are provided as milestone-driven payments totaling up to $900,000 over a three year timeframe. Up to 10 percent of the award may be requested as an upfront payment at the start of the award. Subsequent award payments will be made based on progress. Applications and award budgets should be built around key milestones. (Milestones are key points in a project which represent reliable, quantifiable indicators/deliverables of the project’s progress, and are used to make decisions on further progress.) If an award is made, Harrington Discovery Institute’s Innovation Support Center will work with recipients to help refine and manage project milestones.
The project must be structured to deliver a lead product with strong potential for clinical and commercial application.
