We’re proud to offer scholarships to researchers, students, and clinicians.

Research Awards

The NeKF awards grants to local researchers on an annual basis to seek cures for kidney disease and renal failure and to improve the quality of life for renal patients.  Research awards are dependent on available funding.  If funds are available, applications will be accepted in September of each year.  Email info@healthykidneys.org for more information.

Shane Leone Memorial Scholarship

The NeKF offers a scholarship program for young adults affected by kidney disease or organ donation that are pursuing higher education.  Awards are given each May.  Email Info@healthykidneys.org for more information.  Made possible by the family of Shane Leone.

Scholarships for National Conferences

The NeKF offers clinicians grants to attend the NKF Clinical Meetings and other national conferences. No more than two scholarships will be given each year. We prefer to fund new clinicians that are entering the renal field but all requests will be considered. Email info@healthykidneys.org for more information.
