Apply for Funding

If you are a researcher interested in applying for funding from the Jain Foundation, please read the guidelines on this page and the specific instructions linked below.

The explicit goal of the Jain Foundation is to expedite development of a treatment or cure for the dysferlinopathies (LGMD2B and Miyoshi Myopathy). Your proposed project MUST have application to these diseases, or it will not be considered. For examples of the types of projects we fund, please view our currently funded projects.

Proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis.

All grants are reviewed in-house by the Jain Foundation scientific advisory board (click here for brief biographies of our team members). Typically we respond to grant submissions within 4-6 weeks. Researchers are welcome to contact the Jain Foundation with a 1-2 page "pre-proposal" to gauge our level of interest at any time. Please send pre-proposals to Sarah Shira, Office and Grants Manager (
