The California Table Grape Commission seeks to fund research projects that assess the benefits of table grapes to human health, using a freeze-dried powder made from fresh grapes.  Research should focus on the beneficial effects of grapes as a food, in pursuit of health.


Candidates must have a medical or other doctoral degree and be a faculty member or project leader at a college or university, teaching hospital, or established research institute or organization. Preference will be given to researchers with previous experience in related research.  Prior grantees are eligible to apply for a new grant, but previous grantees must also submit a progress report on the state of their original commission-funded research, which should demonstrate results from that previously funded research and evidence of effort to extend that research through other funding resources.
