Breaking into research

Grants for new physicians and PhD researchers

The American Osteopathic Foundation and the AOA have partnered to offer new physicians and PhD researchers funding to conduct 18-month projects rooted in osteopathic principles and practice.

The objective of the New Investigator Grant Program is to advance scientific training for researchers who have completed a terminal research degree or postgraduate clinical training, whichever came later, within the past 10 years. The program provides up to $50,000 in research funding for DOs, MDs or PhDs conducting 18-month studies.  

Individuals who previously competed successfully as a Principal Investigator (PI) for a larger AOA grant (i.e., $100,000-$150,000 grant award) and/or received an R01 National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant or its equivalent as a PI are not eligible.

The annual application cycle is from Nov. 1 to Jan. 31. Researchers are eligible to apply for AOA grant funding that corresponds to RFAs in the AOA’s five research focus areas. Check back on Nov. 1, 2019, for information about the 2020 grant program.
