The specific number of projects to be funded will depend on the merit and scope of the applications received and the availability of funds.

Funding support from the SRF may NOT be used for administrative overhead, indirect expenses, or other institutional charges. The sole exception to this prohibition is that the SRF will pay indirect costs of up to 7.5% of the direct project costs for multi-center (including more than 10 distinct clinical centers), longitudinal patient studies (with an agreement for at least 3 years of follow-up) that are intended to enroll more than 1,000 scleroderma patients.
