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 persons living with epilepsy and associated psychiatric disorders, in under-resourced areas of the world.
If you are considering submitting a funding request to the ROW Foundation, we’d be pleased to receive a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) from you, but please keep our funding guidelines in mind.
- Unsolicited funding inquiries are only accepted through this online Letter of Inquiry process.
- Grants are typically made to US-based organizations that are exempt from federal income tax, or to foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in close partnership with a US-based tax-exempt organization. At this time only pre-screened applicant organizations will be invited to complete the full grant application.
- Please be sure your project closely aligns with the ROW Foundation’s vision, mission and areas of response to epilepsy and associated psychiatric disorders.

Examples of Funded Projects
Examples of projects in line with our funding priorities include . . .
- The placement of an EEG workstation in a pediatric hospital in an under-resourced area
- A mechanism for getting much-needed epilepsy medications into areas previously unsupplied, and for ensuring the medications are constantly available at affordable prices
- A distance education program for bringing epilepsy-specific training to health care providers in areas where such instruction is unavailable
- Pilot projects to develop epilepsy telehealth protocols allowing neurologists and epileptologists in the well-resourced world to assist in the diagnosis, treatment planning and coaching of health care providers in the under-resourced world
These are just examples of the kinds of projects the ROW Foundation is interested in. Your proposed project may be similar, or completely different. The important factor to consider is whether it promises to improve the quality of epilepsy-related training available to healthcare providers, or the quality of diagnosis and treatment available to persons living with epilepsy, in under-resourced areas of the world.
