Application Deadline: August 15th 2022
About Opportunity

The Sjögren’s Foundation is excited to share the creation and launch of a new funding opportunity to explore Sjögren’s and dysautonomia. 

The prevalence and impact of neurological signs, symptoms and conditions in Sjögren’s are becoming more apparent and we have seen a notable rise in interest from our patient population to learn more in this area. Our recent Living with Sjögren’s  patient survey found that neurological-related conditions had the third highest prevalence when categorized by body system or type – 83% of respondents had at least one neurological-related condition.

Eligibility Requirements

Sjögren’s Foundation research grants are open to basic and clinical scientists holding an advanced degree (MD, PhD, DDS, DMD, OD and similar) at any U.S. university or research institution. Both junior and senior investigators may apply. For physicians, advanced clinical training in rheumatology or neurology is desirable for this award. 


Funding Amount: $50,000
Duration: 1 year
This award will support innovative research proposals exploring the connection and occurrence of Sjögren’s and dysautonomia.

Application Procedure

This award supports more fully developed research proposals, which should already have the necessary preliminary data and methodology in place to move forward into the next phase of the project.
