DON'T MISS OUT on the biggest osteopathic event of the year! Reserve your spot at OMED today
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 that corresponds to the AOA’s two research focus areas.
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.
Since 2016, the AOA has awarded more than $4 million in grants for osteopathic research. Learn more about projects funded by the AOA’s research grant program. Click the links below for information on how to submit your research for funding in the 2020 grant program.
