Find the full program descriptions below.
American Heart Association – Summer 2012 Funding Opportunities
- National Scientist Development Grant– Up to $77,000 per year for up to four years to support highly promising beginning scientists in their progress toward independence by encouraging and adequately funding research projects that can bridge the gap between completion of research training and readiness for a successful career as an independent investigator.
- National Innovative Research Grant– Up to $75,000 per year for two years to support highly innovative, high-risk, high-reward research that could ultimately lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that will accelerate the field of cardiovascular and stroke research.
- National Established Investigator Award– Up to 80,000 per year for up to five years to support mid-career investigators with unusual promise and an established record of accomplishments; candidates must have a demonstrated commitment to cardiovascular or cerebrovascular science as indicated by prior publication history and scientific accomplishments.
- Western States Postdoctoral Fellowship– Funding amounts vary. This opportunity is intended to help trainees initiate careers in cardiovascular and stroke research while obtaining significant research results under the supervision of a sponsor or mentor; supports individuals before they are ready for some stage of independent research.
- Western States Beginning Grant-in-Aid– Up to $70,000 per year for up to two years to promote the independent status of promising beginning scientists. Research should be broadly related to cardiovascular function and disease and stroke, or related clinical, basic science, bioengineering or biotechnology, and public health problems, including multidisciplinary efforts.
- Western States Grant-in-Aid– Up to $70,000 per year for up to two years to encourage and adequately fund the most innovative and meritorious research projects from independent investigators. Research must be broadly related to cardiovascular function and disease and stroke, or to clinical, basic science, bioengineering or biotechnology, and public health problems.
- National Clinical Research Program– Up to $77,000 per year for up to two years to encourage early investigators who have appropriate and supportive mentoring relationships to engage in high quality introductory and pilot clinical studies that will guide future strategies for reducing cardiovascular disease and stroke while fostering new research in clinical and translational science, and encouraging community and population-based activities.
- Pre-Doctoral Fellowship– $25,000 per year for one or two years to help student begin careers in cardiovascular or stroke research by providing research assistance and training. Research should be broadly related to cardiovascular function and disease and stroke, or to related clinical, basic science, bioengineering or biotechnology, and public health problems, including multidisciplinary efforts.
