Research Foundation Grants and Awards

The Society offers a range of grant opportunities distributing funds made available by the Research Foundation Board of Trustees to members of the Society. There are two cycles of funding opportunities, spring and fall, but only Limited Project Grants are funded twice a year. Other grant categories are funded as and when resources permit. Potential applicants are advised to contact the Research Foundation office well in advance of any proposed application date to seek clarification and advice about the forthcoming funding cycle. The Chair of the Research Committee encourages members to request points of clarification from him directly.

Recommended by the Research Committee and approved by the Board; for 2023 we will offer the following awards: the Career Development Award ($75,000/year for two years), the Eugene Salvati, MD, Limited Project Grant, (Up to $25,000/year), Special Emphasis Limited Project Grant: Colorectal Surgery and Health Equity, (Up to $20,000/year), Medical Student Research Initiation Grants ($4,000), International Fellowship Grants ($12,500/year), and the General Surgery Resident Research Initiation Grants ($20,000/year). The number of Research in Robotic Surgical Technology Grants to be awarded will continue to depend on industry funding.
