The American Academy of Sleep Medicine Foundation (AASM Foundation) has several different programs in addition to award funding. Additional information about each program can be accessed by clicking the links below. Complete details on deadlines, topic areas (if applicable) and links to the LOI or application forms can be found under the Current Awards section when the award is open for applications.
The Sleep Champion Award celebrates successful community-based sleep health services and education provided by non-profit organizations. AASM members are encouraged to nominate organizations that provide best-in-class care and/or education in the sleep community.
The Community Sleep Health Award 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.
This award provides additional funds to current AASM Foundation research award 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.
The AASM Foundation has partnered with the American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation to fund a new scholarship that is being administered by the AMA Foundation’s Physicians of Tomorrow program. A $10,000 scholarship will be provided to a medical student who is interested in pursuing a career in sleep medicine, maintains academic excellence and demonstrates a financial need.
