Career Development Grants
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.
Bridge to Success Grant for Mid-Career/Senior Investigators
This grant helps independent investigators stay in the field of sleep and circadian research by providing bridge funding while re-applying for research support. The funding provides support during the period of time needed for reapplying for external research funding.
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.
Strategic Research Grant
This grant supports investigator-initiated, high-impact research projects aimed at addressing gaps in knowledge that impact the ability to provide optimal, patient-centered, cost-effective diagnosis and care for patients with sleep disorders. This grant supports projects that are responsive to focused topic areas of interest identified by the AASM Foundation.
Research Supplemental Grants
Diversity Supplement Grant
The Diversity Supplement Grant provides an opportunity for sleep and circadian science investigators, who have a funded research program, 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 sleep and circadian science research projects.
Collaborative Research Grants
AASM Foundation and CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Sleep Medicine
The AASM Foundation has partnered with the CHEST Foundation to jointly fund a research grant in sleep medicine. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine Foundation and CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Sleep Medicine is being administered by the CHEST Foundation and focused on topics that advance sleep medicine and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Projects must also demonstrate how it will have a positive impact on the lung and/or sleep health of a community.
Sleep Research Society Foundation Small Research Grant Program
The AASM Foundation is partnering with the Sleep Research Society Foundation to provide seed funding to support training and research of trainees and early career investigators who otherwise do not have the institutional resources to support new studies and/or do not have a sustained record of external funding. The Small Research Grant Program is administer by the Sleep Research Society Foundation.
