Project Proposals & Funding Requests
We partner with other organizations to maximize impact in under-resourced areas, both internationally and domestically.
The ROW Foundation works to improve the quality of epilepsy-related training available to healthcare providers, as well as the quality of diagnosis and treatment available to people with epilepsy and associated psychiatric disorders in under-resourced areas of the world.
Before submitting a funding request to the ROW Foundation, please send a Letter of Inquiry, keeping the following guidelines in mind.
- Be sure your project closely aligns with the ROW Foundation’s vision, mission and areas of focus regarding epilepsy and associated psychiatric disorders.
- Grants are typically made to US-based, tax exempt organizations, or to foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in close partnership with a US-based tax-exempt organization.
- Unsolicited funding inquiries are only accepted through our online Letter of Inquiry process.

Examples of Funded Projects
Examples of projects in line with our funding priorities:
- Placing an EEG workstation in a hospital in an under-resourced area
- Getting epilepsy medications into previously unsupplied areas and ensuring they are constantly available at affordable prices.
- Supporting a distance education program that brings epilepsy-specific training to healthcare providers in areas where such instruction is unavailable.
- Developing epilepsy telehealth protocols that allow neurologists and epileptologists to assist in the diagnosis, treatment planning and coaching of healthcare providers in under-resourced areas.
These are a few examples of the kinds of projects the ROW Foundation is interested in. Your proposed project may be similar, or completely different. The key factor is whether it will improve the quality of epilepsy-related training available to healthcare providers, or the quality of diagnosis and treatment available to persons with epilepsy in under-resourced areas of the world.
