Medical research funding in the United States has 4 predominant sources: the federal government; the pharmaceutical industry; institutions; and private foundations. In each case, the grant application process is the first step in obtaining funding. Successful grant applications are logical, organized, and easy to read. The research question should be both specific and significant. Comprehensive and detailed study methods addressing the study population, timeline, and data collection and management increase the likelihood of obtaining funding. Funding for inflammatory bowel disease preclinical and clinical research is available from the National Institutes of Health and Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.
