IWMF Grants

December 14, 2023

Dear Waldenstrom Researchers,

The IWMF and our Scientific Advisory Committee have decided to push back the deadline for you to send your proposals. This will give you more time to decide your plans and build your proposals. Additionally, the starting dates for your projects may now be from July 1, 2023, to January 31, 2024. That will help those who are on the fiscal calendar year.

On August 16, 2023, we sent you our latest Request for Proposals. Last year we introduced new types of proposals including a companion RFP and an enhanced IWMF - LLS initiative within the IWMF-LLS Strategic Research Roadmap Initiative for Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM).

In order to achieve the Vision Statement of the International Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation (IWMF), to “support everyone affected by WM to improve patient outcomes while advancing the search for a cure,” the IWMF is pleased to offer research grants in five categories:

I. IWMF-LLS Strategic Research Roadmap Initiative $480,000
II. Robert A. Kyle Career Development Aware $157,500
III. IWMF Research Seed Money Initiative $90,000
IV. IWMF Enhanced Research Roadmap Initiative $1,500,000
V. IWMF Clinical Trial Companion Initiative $100,000
  These number include an IDR of 20%  

Please be sure to note that project proposals in response to this RFP are now due by March 29, 2024, at 5:00 PM EST. Multi-institutional proposals are welcome. We hope you are interested, and we look forward to receiving a proposal from you. Feel free to share the RFP document with any of your colleagues who may also wish to submit a proposal.

Should you have any further questions about the IWMF RFP process, please email the IWMF Finance Manager, Robin Tucker, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
