The AGA invites applications for the Research Scholar Award, through which the AGA aims to support early-career investigators working toward independent and productive research careers in digestive diseases by ensuring that a major proportion of their time is protected for research. Through the program, grants of $100,000 per year for three years will be awarded to early-career faculty (i.e., investigator, instructor, research associate, or equivalent) working toward an independent career in digestive disease research. Applicants performing any research (basic, translational, clinical) relevant to digestive disorders are eligible to apply.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, PhD and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MBChB, MBBS, DO) and a full-time faculty or equivalent position at an institution in North America (U.S., Canada, or Mexico) by the start date (i.e., July 2024) of this award.
Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying to these opportunities.
