American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine Sandy Kirkley Clinical Outcome Research Grant
The late Dr. Sandy Kirkley was a passionate advocate for well-conducted randomized controlled trials to evaluate the efficacy of interventions in orthopaedic sports medicine. It was her strong contention that the field must "rise to the challenge of designing and implementing clinical trials that provide the same level of evidence in support of treatments as our nonsurgical colleagues demand." It is one of her intellectual legacies, then, that our profession in general and the Society specifically embrace and support outcome research that has the potential to inform evidence-based practice.
To honor the memory and spirit of Dr. Kirkley, AOSSM established a $20,000 grant that provides start-up, "seed," or supplemental funding for an outcome research project or pilot study. One grant will be awarded each year and eligible applicants are not restricted to newer investigators as is the case for the Young Investigator Grants.
Deadline: December 1, 2013
American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine Young Investigators Grant
The Young Investigator Grant provides awards in amounts of up to $40,000 aimed at providing "seed money," or start-up funds, for pilot projects. The principal investigator must be an early career orthopaedic surgeon, fellow, or resident with interests in sports medicine research. Any investigational team seeking such a grant must include at least one member of AOSSM in good standing.
Pre-reviews: In an effort to improve the quality and competitiveness of submissions, the AOSSM Research Committee will pre-review and critique applications prior to the final application deadline. This pre-review is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED but not required. It is anticipated that by participating in the pre-review process, the applicant's chances for funding will improve.
The pre-review will focus on:
Significance of proposed research
Realistic nature of goals
Long term value of results
Pre-Review Deadline: August 15th, 2013. You do not need to include any signatures for pre-review.
Final Deadline: December 1, 2013
Note: Final submission deadline: December 1st before midnight. Please contact Bart Mann with any questions.
American Hearing Research Foundation Regular Grants
The American Hearing Research Foundation funds an average of five research grants each year that investigate various aspects of hearing and balance disorders related to the inner ear. Grants are for $20,000 for one year of research. Priority is given to investigators early in their careers who need seed funds to generate results and data that can be used to support later application for larger grants (i.e., NIH grants) in the future.
AHRF Regular Grants
AHRF grant proposals are due on August 1 of the year before funding begins in January. Proposals are reviewed by the AHRF Research Committee in mid-October and applicants are notified as to the status of their grants immediately. The AHRF uses a five point scale for scoring grants, with one being the highest score and 5 the lowest.
Grant proposals should relate to the hearing or balance functions of the ear. Both basic and clinical studies may be proposed that investigates aspects of the auditory and vestibular systems including but not limited to genetics, neurotology, anatomy, auditory processing, molecular and cellular biology, therapeutic studies, and investigations of current or experimental devices (i.e. cochlear implants).
Applicants should hold the MD, PhD or equivalent degree(s) and be associated with a university or hospital in the United States.
Grant recipients need to submit progress reports by April 1. Reports may be included on our website and/or newsletter. Recipients also must notify the AHRF in advance of any publication of their research funded by the AHRF. Recipients should also notify the AHRF if any aspect of their funded research is reported in the media. It is our goal to highlight research results and publications.
Recipients are also required to submit a final report of their research by the end of January after the completion of their funded year of research.
Grant funds may only be used for direct costs, including salaries of technical and supporting staff, equipment related to the research, and supplies. Funding may not be sued for salary of the principle investigator, travel or conference attendance, or educational costs. No-cost extensions of research past the funded year is granted based on approval of the Research Committee.

American Epilepsy Society Seed Grant Program
This program is intended to foster collaborative interactions between two or more established investigators* to make future grants related to epilepsy more competitive for larger awards, and to fuel multi-investigator projects. These small awards are designed to enable information exchange/technology transfer, travel of postdoctoral fellows between laboratories, and modest supplies for the project.
• At least one PI must be an active member of the Society
• Must be a new initiative that will add value to the field or fill a gap in knowledge
• Techniques in a collaborative effort must be complementary
• Must involve two or more established investigators, at least one of which is an epilepsy-focused investigator.
• Although not required, trans-disciplinary projects, projects integrating clinical and basic research, and research directions with translational relevance are encouraged.
*An established investigator is defined as having at least an Associate Professor or equivalent level appointment, and who has a history of successful NIH/NSF/VA funding. Their work can be focused on basic, translational, or clinical research.
Funding: A maximum of five one-year grants in the amount of $20,000 each will be awarded annually. Grants are non-renewable.
Application should be no more than two pages not counting the face page and include:
a) a face page (use this Word document or facsimile)
b) an overview of the research and technical expertise of the participating laboratories/clinical research sites.
c) the research collaboration that is proposed,
d) how the seed grant mechanism will foster this research and the overall collaboration, and
e) a budget.
Applications should also include an NIH format Biosketch for all principal investigators, including present and past funding. This Biosketch should highlight the 5 most significant publications of each investigator published over the past 10 years.
There are three rounds of consideration each year. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of the Research & Training Council and results will be announced within six weeks of the application deadline.
