The AOA awards research training grants for projects focused on the osteopathic approach to treating patients. Learn what steps you'll need to take to apply for funding.
From the start date for funded projects to expenses covered under the grant funding, here’s what you need to know about applying for an AOA research grant.
The start date for all grant projects is Sept. 1.
An investigator with an active AOA grant who is in the first year of his/her existing grant period is ineligible to apply. A previous or current AOA investigator who has failed to meet milestones and/or submit timely progress and financial reports is ineligible to apply.
No, you will need to submit a new application.
At this time, we have not projected a total number of awards or a total number per RFA. We do anticipate receiving at least the same amount as we did in the last grant cycle.
No, investigators can be a PI on only one application (RFA) per grant cycle. However, they may serve as the co-investigator on multiple grant proposals.
Please review the RFA and the Budget Instructions document to learn what the AOA will and will not fund. Use the following link to access the “Grants Checklist and Instructions” document.
