The Incyte Ingenuity Awards in Vitiligo aim to support the vitiligo community by funding two innovative initiatives that address challenges faced by patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers. Two awards for vitiligo-related initiatives will be offered: one up to $100,000 and another up to $35,000. Applications will be accepted from:
- U.S. nonprofit 501(c)(3), patient, policy and caregiver organizations
- U.S. health care providers and mid-level/junior faculty from health care organizations
- Individuals or other companies in the U.S. who partner with either a non-profit organization or a health care facility (e.g., hospitals, academic research centers, etc.)
Additional information and applications can be accessed online at www.incyteingenuityawards.com/vitiligo. To be considered, all applications must be submitted by October 31, 2022. An independent judging panel of up to five members of the vitiligo community, including patient advocacy group leaders, physicians, nurses and/or social workers, will review the applications for the awards and recipients will be announced in March 2023.
Programs must be independent of any activities you may currently have ongoing, with the exception of considerably expanding an existing program. Additionally, programs cannot include indirect costs with the proposed budget. To be eligible, you and your organization must be US-based (including Washington DC and Puerto Rico).
