Founded in 1975, ASPEN Rhoads Research Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, funds exceptional scientific research projects on clinical nutrition and metabolic support.
To help advance this mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its ASPEN Rhoads Research Foundation Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of research projects by early-career investigators with the potential to advance the science and practice of clinical nutrition and metabolism. Project goals should be in alignment with the priorities outlined in the ASPEN Research Agenda.
To be eligible, applicants must be within ten years of completing a terminal research degree or medical residency (or the equivalent); be at or below the rank of assistant professor; and commit at least 20 percent of their time to research in a professional institute that conducts nutrition research.
See the ASPEN website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about previous grant recipients.
