The National Vulvodynia Association (NVA) is requesting research proposals on (i) potential causes of vulvodynia and (ii) promising treatments for vulvodynia. Grant amounts range from $30,000 to $50,000. If you choose to submit a treatment study, we encourage you to collaborate with a clinical researcher at another institution to facilitate enrollment. Grants for treatment studies are typically close to $50,000, but we can increase that amount for multi-site studies.
If you are interested in applying, please send an email to Phyllis Mate (
Applications must provide confirmation that all funds will be applied to direct research costs, not institutional costs. If you've previously applied and/or received grant support from the NVA, you are still eligible to apply. Summaries of studies that NVA has funded to date can be viewed on NVA's web site.
