IDA MSI GRANT PROGRAM: 
Contribution of Multisensory Components to Structured-Language Reading Instruction
 
Due to budgetary constraints and cutbacks, we will not be able to support the MSI Grant Award.  It is our hope that we will be able to reinstate this program in the near future. 

The International Dyslexia Association announces a competitive grant program to stimulate scientific study investigating the value of multisensory instruction (MSI) in teaching reading, particularly to students at risk for academic failure or underachievement such as those with dyslexia. The MSI Grant Program will provide up to $20,000 for one year for new educational, neuroscience, cognitive science, or other research projects focused on this topic. 

 

IDA GENERAL GRANT PROGRAM: 
Research on Developmental Dyslexia

Deadline for submissions: 
Due to budgetary constraints and cutbacks, we will not be able to support the General Grant Award.  It is our hope that we will be able to reinstate this program in the near future. 

Grant Award
The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) announces an annual competitive grant program to support research projects involving the study of issues related to developmental dyslexia.  The General Grant Program is designed to provide up to $20,000 for one year for new or ongoing educational, medical and cognitive science research projects.  Studies on humans or experimental models (computer, etc.) are eligible.  The main criteria for the awards are the excellence of the proposals and their potential enhancement of theories, research, and applications related to dyslexia.

Awards
The grant will provide support for up to $20,000 for one year and is not renewable, although PIs can be funded by IDA more than one time in successive years for different projects.  The funding period begins September 1 and ends August 31 of the following year.
