The aims for allocating the available funds are:

A) Basic and clinical research in the field of sexual medicine;

B) Training of professionals in the field of sexual medicine;

C) Public education.


Awards for Zorgniotti Grants are up to USD 15,000 for 1-year projects or up to USD 25,000 for 2-year projects. Please note that indirect costs or overhead may not be included in these awards.
