The primary mission of the Research Foundation of the American Society of Colon & Rectal Surgeons is to raise and award funds to support research and educational programs related to colon and rectal diseases.
To that end, the foundation invites applications for its Limited Project Grant program. Through the program, grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of research that is germane to the field of colon and rectal surgery. It is anticipated that successful research projects, initially funded through the Research Foundation’s LPG mechanism, will ultimately secure funding from other national funding agencies.
To be eligible, co-principal investigators or principal investigators must be an ASCRS member and the proposed research must be conducted in the United States or Canada.
