Call for Applications: American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society Research Grants
Deadline for 2015 Research Grant Applications is December 1, 2014
The AOFAS awards one-year research grants (July 1 - June 30) in amounts up to $20,000. The goals of the Research Grants Program are:
• to advance foot and ankle investigation by providing seed funding for promising research projects
• to encourage supplemental submissions to national funding sources.
Applications are reviewed and ranked by the Research Committee on a competitive basis using a blinded NIH-style process. Funding recommendations are submitted to the AOFAS Board of Directors, which approves funding based on monies available without identification of project titles or names of investigators.
Grants awarded by the AOFAS have resulted in innovative insights in foot and ankle care, presentations at AOFAS and other educational meetings, published articles in Foot & Ankle International and other specialty journals, and larger grants from national sources.
Eligibility for grant funding is a benefit of membership in AOFAS, and the principal investigator or co-investigator must be an AOFAS Active Member, Associate Member - Osteopathic, Candidate Member or International Member.
The principal investigators or co-investigators will not be awarded more than two grants in any four consecutive years. Research Committee members and its ad hoc reviewers may not submit applications in the year they are reviewing applications.
