The American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Academy of Family Physicians, works to advance the values of family medicine by promoting humanitarian, educational, and scientific initiatives that improve the health of all people.
Through its Joint Grant Awards Program, the foundation supports research of one- to two-year duration that poses questions of high relevance to family medicine. The maximum JGAP grant award is $50,000. Applications for smaller-scale studies with lower costs are also welcome.
To be eligible, the principal investigator must be a family medicine researcher, either a clinician or PhD. In addition, the PI or a co-investigator must be a member of AAFP. Priority will be given to new researchers or those who mentor new investigators on the research team. Education and healthcare institutions or organizations that intend to use JGAP support exclusively for research projects directly involving and impacting family medicine are also eligible.
See the AAFP website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and application instructions.
