AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards
The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) has joined with the American Heart Association (AHA) to establish the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards. Together, the AHA and CHF are offering a jointly-funded request for applications for the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards (CHDRAs). The purpose of the CHDRAs is to provide support for investigators who are actively conducting research directly related to advancing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of CHDs. The joint RFA and funding opportunity will further this goal by offering competitive research grants in basic, clinical, population, or translational research related to CHDs.
The American Heart Association (AHA) and The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) announce this joint Request for Applications (RFA) to fund the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards (CHDRAs). The AHA and CHF share common priorities and interests in investing in congenital heart defects (CHD) research.
Predoctoral Fellowships, Postdoctoral Fellowships, Career Development Awards, and Transformational Project Awards will be funded through this RFA.
Deadline: Sep. 19, 2019
Awards are open to an array of academic and health professionals. This includes but is not limited to all academic disciplines (biology, chemistry, mathematics, technology, physics, bioengineering, etc.) and all health-related professions (physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physical and occupational therapists, statisticians, nutritionists, etc.).
Awards are limited to U.S.-based non-profit institutions, including medical, osteopathic and dental schools, veterinary schools, schools of public health, pharmacy schools, nursing schools, universities and colleges, public and voluntary hospitals and others that can demonstrate the ability to conduct the proposed research. Applications will not be accepted for work with funding to be administered through any federal institution or work to be performed by a federal employee, except for Veterans Administration employees.
Applications from women, people in ethnic and racial groups underrepresented in science, and those who have experienced varied and non-traditional career trajectories are strongly encouraged.
• An applicant may submit only one Predoctoral Fellowship application per deadline. • A Predoctoral Fellowship student may hold only one fellowship award at a time.
• The sponsor/co-sponsor may supervise no more than two AHA-funded Predoctoral Fellows and two AHA-funded Postdoctoral Fellows at the same time concurrently. Fellows who are part of an AHA Strategically Focused Research Network are excluded.
