SCA supports cardiothoracic and vascular research projects. This is the basis for the creation of the SCA/IARS Starter Grants and SCA/IARS Mid-Career Grants.
The SCA is committed to promoting the representation of women and underrepresented minority investigators. Diversity is vitally important to advance scientific discovery. Starting with this year’s funding cycle, the SCA is especially encouraging individuals from all racial, ethnic or gender groups to apply.
2020 Research Grant Opportunities
- Two types of grants will be awarded in 2020:
- SCA/IARS Starter Grant - up to $25,000 per year for two years.
- SCA/IARS Mid-Career Grant - up to $50,000 per year for two years.
The awards will be announced at the 2020 SCA Annual Meeting & Workshops. We encourage all applicants to plan to attend the meeting for the award ceremony. Grant recipients are required to present their work at a subsequent SCA Annual Meeting. The grant period of 12 to 24 months can begin any time from July 1 to December 31 of the year granted. At twelve and twenty-four months from the grant inception date a report on the status of the research project will be due to the Research Committee.
2020 Research Grant applications are now closed.
