Our Grant Awardees

The National Scleroderma Foundation has proudly awarded more than $30 million in scleroderma research grants since 1989, including awards made by its predecessor organizations, the United Scleroderma Foundation and the Scleroderma Federation. These projects received the Peer‑Review committee’s highest ranking for scientific design quality and the prospect of advancing the scleroderma body of knowledge.

Because grants are spread over two or three years, in any given year, the Foundation has funding commitments to more than two dozen ongoing projects. Our commitment to these projects is a driving force behind fundraising efforts such as Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma walks.
