LOI application instructions

Named for the infant son of preeclampsia survivor Lauren Pappas and her husband Clement, the program seeks to award multiple grants totaling up to $200,000 each year.

The Vision Grant Award Program

May 2024 - The 2024 Vision Grant cycle is now closed.

Vision Grants are intended to provide initial funding for novel, innovative research by promising young investigators that will advance progress towards detection, prevention, or treatment of preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome, and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Post-doctoral, Clinical Fellows, or Early Stage Investigators only are eligible to apply. Projects with potential to alter clinical management and improve patient outcomes will receive priority, but any well-considered research proposal will be accepted for review. International applications are welcome; however, submissions must be in English. The Foundation has committed to funding grants that address known research knowledge gaps.
