Grapes from California – Health Research Grants

November 4, 2022 by

Over 20 years ago, California’s table grape growers established a health research grant program to help discover how and why grapes are beneficial to health.

Call for Letters of Intent: October 20-November 30, 2022. Each fall, Letters of Intent are solicited from the research community. Following review, finalists are invited to submit full proposals. A scientific advisory panel of distinguished scientists conducts the rigorous grant review and selection process.

The grape research funded by California table grape growers has covered a wide range of health topics including heart, joint, brain, and eye health, as well as certain cancers. To view the list of funded research to date click here.

Grape research is conducted using a freeze-dried table grape powder, designed to facilitate reproducible data and to provide researchers with a grape sample that is available year round. A grape powder placebo is also made available.

If you are a researcher who would like to submit a Letter of Intent to the commission, please review the attached documents which outline the guidelines for submitting. Letters of Intent are due to the commission on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 by 5 p.m. PST.
