EndoFound Research Grants


Give back by helping us fund endometriosis research today!



The Endometriosis Foundation of America is committed to funding landmark endometriosis research.
We support innovative research studies that aim to develop better strategies in diagnosing and treating endometriosis. These research studies investigate many different topics, from the social impact of the disease to the molecular level. Studies funded by EndoFound continue to be published in top journals and garner distinguished awards. 

Each year, EndoFound handpicks projects from researchers who show a strong track record of producing impactful studies that influence the clinical care and overall health outcomes of endometriosis patients. These projects utilize innovative methodologies and detail research objectives that aim to advance the scientific community’s understanding of the disease.

Please subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates about our annual grant cycle. 

Our mission is to one day discover a cure for endometriosis, and to forever better the lives of millions of women worldwide.

You can help us on this journey by donating now, including a one-time gift, monthly gift or an employer-matched gift, and your support will go towards funding this crucial research.   




Endofound is a charitable entity and is not committed to matching the indirect cost rates of the U.S. government or other entities.  We believe our policy to allow no more than 10% of any Endofound research grant funding to go towards indirect costs is consistent with that of many private foundations and certain government entities that have a flat rate that caps the amount an applicant institution can charge. Endofound's policy helps ensure furtherance of our charitable purpose.
