About this funder:




Starting in 2019, Bay Area Lyme Foundation is moving to a revised granting timeline. While we will still accept grant proposals on a rolling basis year round (as in the past), we will now review grants, other than the Emerging Leader Awards (ELA), at three times per year.

Awardees are evaluated on their concepts, ideas, methods, and resourcefulness in bringing new vision into the field of Lyme disease research. Our mission is to fund research and development of novel diagnostics and treatments for Lyme disease.

Grant recipients do not need to have previous experience in Lyme disease research. Every year, we fund researchers who, while respected in their scientific areas of focus, have never previously leveraged their knowledge and abilities for research in Lyme disease.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • We accept applications from universities, hospitals, and independent research entities all over the United States.


  • We want to understand how your research will affect patients who are not easy to diagnose and treat. In particular, what is your approach to addressing early stage vs. late stage or post treatment Lyme disease?
  • Ecological studies that relate to the prevention of lyme disease are also funded.


  • We cannot accept research proposals from outside the U.S.
