2014 ACVS FOUNDATION RESEARCH GRANTS
The online application process for ACVS Foundation Research Grants will open in late summer, 2013.
The ACVS Foundation has established a research grant awards program. Surgically related clinical and basic research applications will be considered for funding. All applications are submitted online to the ACVS Research Committee, which compiles an evaluative ranking of the applications for the ACVS Board of Regents. The ACVS Board of Regents forwards its recommendations for funding to the ACVS Foundation. View information on past grants awarded.
Zoetis Dual Training Research Grants, sponsored by Zoetis, are available to ACVS residents or Diplomates currently enrolled in a PhD program. The major goal of this program is to provide ‘seed’ funds for small projects or pilot studies specifically designed to target larger granting agencies.
- There is no restriction on the area of research focus.
- Applications must be directly related to the PhD program area of study.
- Applications may be submitted as part of a larger research program.
- ACVS Residents and Diplomates may apply for the Zoetis Dual Training Research Grants at any stage of their PhD program and will be expected to initiate the proposed research program within a year of receiving funds.
- The total amount to be awarded annually will be $15,000.
- This may be awarded as either one grant or several smaller grants, depending upon the rankings of the applications received each year.
Surgeon-In-Training Research Grants are available to candidates in ACVS residency programs.
- The resident will substantially participate in developing and writing the application.
- Residents should apply during their first two years as the project should be completed by the end of their training.
- The amount awarded is determined annually.
Diplomate Clinical Research Grants are designed to fund clinically oriented projects that utilize either clinical case material or experimental subjects to address a clinically-oriented surgical problem.
- This program is not designed to fund basic or fundamental research.
- The major goal of this program will be to fund small 'standalone' projects or pilot studies specifically designed to target larger granting agencies.
- Only ACVS Diplomates are eligible to apply as Principal Investigators.
Only one application will be considered from each principal investigator per funding cycle. Similar or identical grants cannot be submitted to multiple ACVS grant programs in the same year.
