Grants - Fondation Jérôme Lejeune


The Jerome Lejeune Foundation is the world’s oldest and largest funder of research into treatments for intellectual disabilities of genetic origin, especially, but not limited to, Down syndrome. The Foundation’s specific research interest is to discover a means to prevent and/or treat genetic intellectual disabilities in order to improve the memory, speech, and cognition of patients.


The Jerome Lejeune Foundation will consider all proposals which have as their goal advancing scientific knowledge which leads to the discovery of treatments to improve the intellectual capacities of those affected by genetic illness. The Foundation provides no funding for research into autism. Therapeutically oriented projects will be given priority and may receive consideration for larger grants. Funding for research congresses and teaching programs may also be considered.


Grants are provided for one or two years. Maximum grant is €20,000 for one year or €40,000 for two years. Awards may be higher when it is shown that projects are anticipating significant breakthroughs of value to the research community worldwide.

Applicants must complete the Foundation’s grant application form and submit it along with all supporting documentation by the deadline stated below. The Jerome Lejeune Scientific Board will study your application and inform you of its decision. The Scientific Board reviews applications twice each year.
