Pediatric Cardiology Research Fellowship Award
The Section on Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery is pleased to announce the availability of the 2019-20 Research Fellowship Award, made possible by an educational grant from the Children’s Heart Foundation. The purpose of the Award is to promote understanding of cardiovascular disease in children. The grant will provide research support for an individual who has demonstrated aptitude for basic science or clinical science research during their pediatric cardiology fellowship. Trainees in an accredited U.S. pediatric cardiology or cardiovascular surgical training program are eligible. The Section has offered a Research Fellowship Award since 1990. The award recipient is selected in the winter and begins the fellowship in July of the award year. The results of the fellow's research are presented during the Section on Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery's program at the National Conference and Exhibition (Annual Meeting) the following year. The award represents a tremendous opportunity for junior faculty in pediatric cardiology to gain research experience.

The AAP Section on Cardiology & Cardiac Surgery, supported by the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation, is offering a pediatric cardiomyopathy research grant. The Pediatric Cardiomyopathy Award is awarded to an early career pediatric cardiologist (within five years of fellowship) to advance medical knowledge on the causes and mechanism of pediatric cardiomyopathy and to develop diagnostic guidelines and targeted therapies. The Pediatric Cardiomyopathy Early Career Award provides up to a $50,000 stipend to reward the recipient for his or her research efforts. Funding requests are limited to US $50,000 total (direct costs only) for a one-year period.
