Endoscopic Research Awards
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2014 at 5pm CST.
ASGE Endoscopic Research Awards are offered to physicians for projects in basic, translational and clinical endoscopic research. The ASGE is particularly interested in endoscopic research pertaining to colorectal cancer, Barrett's esophagus, endoscopy training/credentialing/simulation, endoscopic issues specific to under-represented minorities (defined as women and individuals of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds), measuring/improving quality and efficiency in endoscopy, endoscope reprocessing and infection control (especially vacuum canisters), endoscopy/anesthesia monitoring and preparation (especially CO2 monitoring), comparative effectiveness with competing technologies/therapies, NOTES, novel endoscopic treatments for obesity, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and other endoscopically-guided imaging/intervention. The research committee will consider funding "seed" projects if there is an explicit outline for subsequent projects, and their funding plan (e.g. NIH, VA Merit), based on the preliminary data generated by the proposed pilot.
To foster research in routine and advanced gastrointestinal endoscopy.
Candidate must be an ASGE member (ASGE membership at the time of application is a requirement for eligibility for grants and awards), be an MD (or have equivalent degree), and be currently practicing in a gastrointestinal endoscopy-related academic institution or private practice setting in North America (international applications will be considered as described below). Candidates who are delinquent on prior ASGE research grant progress reports are not eligible for future ASGE funding. If the candidate is a trainee, there must be a letter from the Division Chief confirming the trainee's ongoing appointment at the institution for the duration of the grant, and their position title, and/or a contingency plan.
Grants may be requested for up to $75,000 in total funding, and spread over two years of study. Note: If the application is not selected for the Quality in Endoscopy Research Award, it will still be considered for an Endoscopic Research Award.
Requests for funding "seed" projects that will lead to further research, as well as larger requests for definitive clinical trials will be considered. In order to maximize the funds available for research, money for travel to meetings will not be provided, nor will funding be provided for indirect costs.
Grants are awarded based on the scientific merit of the proposal and assessment of the investigator's ability to complete the project (supportive environment, experience, training, availability of patients and other resources needed). The proposed research project must be approved by the ASGE Research Committee and should also be of such quality as to lead to presentation at Digestive Disease Week® and subsequent full publication. One objective of these ASGE awards is the eventual submission of larger research funding requests, including federal funding, and proposals with such potential will be given priority.
ASGE International Members are eligible to apply for an Endoscopic Research Award (Current ASGE membership is a requirement of eligibility for grants and awards). The ASGE Research Committee will consider funding one international project for up to $75,000. The project justification should explain the relevance of the project to the ASGE membership, and should explain if there are unique reasons why an international location for the project might be more feasible than in North America. All other standards listed above will apply to international applicants. Please contact email@example.com or Liz O'Keefe at 630.570.5623 for more information on eligibility.
Anthony Battaglia Pocket Nurse Scholarships
International Nursing Simulation/Learning Resource Center Conference
The International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) is pleased to announce the Anthony Battaglia Pocket Nurse Scholarships. Each year, a number of non-transferable scholarships to support attendance at the annual INACSL conference are made available through a generous donation from Pocket Nurse. These scholarships are designed to stimulate interest and participation in the development and advancement of clinical simulation in nursing and learning resource centers through the payment of conference registration costs.
The Anthony Battaglia Scholarships are open to all educators, learning resource specialists, managers, and students who are interested in the design and development of clinical simulation to enhance education, research, and practice in nursing. Priority is given to current members of INACSL and first time attendees. Recipients will be recognized at the INACSL business meeting held at the annual conference.
Scholarship applications are reviewed by members of the INACSL Scholarship Committee. The selection of scholarship recipients is based on submitted documentation that provides evidence of contributions that advance simulation in nursing.
Submit a one-page typed paper not to exceed 500 words that includes the following information:
Heading with name, title and/or role, institution, address, phone number, current INACSL membership status (i.e. member/non-member), and attendance status (first time attendee, previous attendee)
Describe background in simulation (e.g. teaching, research, clinical lab management, professional presentations, publications)
Discuss future plans to utilize simulation in nursing education, research, or practice.
Submit curriculum vitae, two pages or less, focusing on simulation associated activities.
Send letter and curriculum vitae electronically to Pat Pulito, Chair of the Scholarship Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 p.m. February 14, 2014. Please include the words “Anthony Battaglia Pocket Nurse Scholarship” in the e-mail subject line to avoid being identified as “spam.”
Dispersal of Funds
Scholarship recipients will be notified of their award via e-mail by March 14, 2014. Once notified, recipients have until March 28, 2014 to notify Pat Pulito of scholarship acceptance or the scholarship will be forfeited.
All scholarship recipients are required to complete the International Nursing Association Simulation/Learning Resource Center’s online registration form. Funds will be dispersed directly to the conference providers. Attendees are responsible for all transportation, lodging, and personal expenses while attending the conference.
