The Pedal with Pete Foundation annually awards grants to one or more recipients whose proposals most closely adhere to the directives of our mission statement:
The Pedal with Pete Foundation supports research leading to better prevention strategies, treatment protocols, or cures for cerebral palsy, as well as through other programs to improve the quality of life for people who live with cerebral palsy, their families and caregivers.
Pedal with Pete partners with the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Development Medicine (AACPDM) to aid in the assessment, ranking, and selection of grant requests.
The AACPDM is the premier international organization promoting excellence in research and services for the benefit of people with cerebral palsy and childhood-onset disabilities.
Historically, our grants have been awarded in a range of approximately $25,000 – $35,000.
The principal investigator must be a member of the AACPDM and applicants should have a solid track record in childhood-onset disability research.
Researchers should submit grant requests directly to the AACPDM by mid-April to be considered to receive Pedal with Pete funding beginning in the fall. In July, the Pedal with Pete Foundation Board chooses one to three grants from a selection recommended by the AACPDM.
Grant recipients will be required to report progress semi-annually, and provide a summary of findings and future plans at the completion of the funding. Researchers are notified of their award in August or September.
