We are no longer accepting applications for the 2023-2024 Sleep Research Program for Advancing Careers (SOAR). The 2024-2025 application cycle will open February 2024.

The AASM Foundation is committed to growing and supporting the pipeline of sleep scientists by investing in the research careers of new investigators through mentorship and grantsmanship training opportunities.
The Sleep Research Program for Advancing Careers is a research training program designed to support early career sleep and circadian investigators through a structured and mentored grant writing curriculum. At the end of the program, the early career investigators will be expected to have a completed grant application to submit for a federal or nonprofit career development grant such as an NIH K award. The goal of this program is to increase the number of early-career investigators who successfully apply for and secure external sleep research funding.
