Grants to USA researchers for innovative eating disorder research. Funding is intended to improve the lives of those suffering from eating disorders through research on prevention, treatment, and diagnosis. Priority is given to eligible applicants from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, social, and clinical sciences.

NEDA aims to be a meaningful funding organization for clinically relevant human participant pilot studies focused on eating disorders. It is understood that the resulting preliminary data from these pilot studies is typically part of a larger research plan that leads to further funding through federal agencies and foundations, which have the capacity to support more substantial, definitive projects. 

Of interest to NEDA are research projects, covering the broad spectrum of eating disorder diagnoses, that can be translated to clinical care and/or applied prevention strategies within one to five years; basic science research projects will not be considered at this time. In addition, NEDA is keenly interested in research projects that address participation from underserved community members, and projects that will translate increasing access to treatment for marginalized populations.
