Programs

The AASM Foundation offers community, research and training programs to support our vision of Healthier Lives through Better Sleep. For more than 20 years, we’ve supported various projects across the spectrum of translational sleep research, clinical and population health and implementation science. We also continue to invest in the careers of our future clinicians and scientists.

Our programs are open for application at different times throughout the year. Complete details on deadlines, topic areas (if applicable) and links to the application can be found under the ‘Now Accepting Applications’ section.

Now Accepting Applications

American Board of Sleep Medicine Junior Faculty Grant

This grant supports early career physician scientists with faculty appointments who are committed to academic careers and focusing their research in basic, translational, clinical or population sleep and circadian science by providing funding for mentored research projects. The grant supports mentored projects that address one or more important unanswered scientific questions related to sleep and circadian science, sleep disorders and/or sleep health.

Bridge to Success Grant for Early Career Investigators

This grant assists investigators at a critical juncture in their career where bridge funding can determine whether a promising sleep and circadian scientist stays in the sleep field or moves to a different career track. The funding provides support during the period of time needed for revision and resubmission of a promising application in response to reviewer critiques.

Physician Scientist Training Grant

This grant supports early career sleep medicine physicians who are committed to pursuing a research career in basic, translational, clinical or population sleep and circadian science by providing a protected research training experience for a mentored research project upon completion of their clinical training. The grant supports mentored projects that address one or more important unanswered scientific questions related to sleep and circadian science, sleep disorders and/or sleep health.

Focused Projects Grant for Junior Investigators

This grant provides seed funding for mentored research projects in an effort to jumpstart an early career investigator’s research career. The grant supports mentored projects that address one or more important unanswered scientific questions related to sleep, sleep disorders and/or sleep health.

Community Sleep Health Grant

The Community Sleep Health Grant is intended to support a wide range of projects spearheaded by community leaders and/or interprofessional individuals (educators, researchers, practitioners, students) who are dedicated to addressing sleep health needs in the community and sustaining population sleep well-being.

Diversity Supplement Grant

This grant provides additional funds to current AASM Foundation research grant investigators to support mentored sleep and circadian research training of promising students, post-doctoral fellows and clinical fellows who are members of minority groups traditionally underrepresented in US science to participate in AASM Foundation-funded research projects.
