SAGES Research Grants

Funding Agency:
Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons

The SAGES Research Awards are open to any principal investigator who is a current SAGES member, including Candidate Members. Please read all the guidelines carefully. SAGES would like to especially encourage grant funding to young investigators/candidate members in the hopes that funding through SAGES will lead to additional extramural funding.

SAGES considers a Young Investigator as someone who has not practiced surgery independently for more than 5 years.

Awards are conferred on a competitive basis by submission of a grant application, which is assessed by the SAGES Research and Career Development Committee, in a blinded fashion, free of conflict of interest. Ultimately the recommended grantees are approved by the governing board.

The purpose of these grants is to stimulate original research in gastrointestinal and endoscopic surgery. The study may be either “bench” research or clinical.

  • Grants are limited to no more than $30,000 each, for 1-year period
  • Made to the Institution

Applications Close: November 25, 2022
