The Plastic Surgery Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is accepting applications for research projects that address a topic of importance to the current clinical practice of plastic surgery.
Through the National Endowment for Plastic Surgery grant program, the foundation will award a grant of up to $50,000 for a project that is clinically relevant, immediate, or focused on an emerging issue in the field. Priority will be given to well-developed projects with a high likelihood of having impact on the scientific discipline and/or on patient care.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, DO, or PhD, as well as a full-time clinical or research position in the United States or at a Canadian institution. In addition, all applicants must be an ASPS member or obtain sponsorship from an active ASPS member.
