Oxalosis and Hyperoxaluria Foundation (OHF) - Home

Grant Applications
The Research Grant program assists investigators, new or established, who have research projects for which they need support. While the OHF primarily seeks to fund grants which will increase the understanding of Primary Hyperoxaluria and oxalosis and improve the clinical management and treatment of the genetic diseases, applications focused on hyperoxaluria and oxalosis associated with other conditions and diseases will also be considered.

Support: Applications for up to two years of support will be considered. These funds may be used in the following categories: Personnel, Supplies, Other Costs, Travel, and Equipment. Indirect costs up to 10% of the direct costs (excluding equipment) may be requested.
