VAF Issues RFP for Clinical Research Grant

The VAF is now calling for proposals for a Founders Clinical Research Grant in honor of the founders of the ACVO. The goal of this initiative is to promote clinical research by ACVO board-certified diplomates in private practice or academia. The award will be a maximum of $10,000 (indirect costs are not allowed). All meritorious grant proposals will be considered for funding.

In addition, in recognition of the challenges of conducting the high quality clinical studies that are the target for this program, the timeline for grant reporting has also been revised.

Projects must now be completed by and presented to the ACVO Conference in 2022, instead of the previous 2021 deadline, with an interim progress report to the VAF by May 2021.

Grant applicants are due by February 28, 2019 at 11:59 pm EST. Funding decisions will be announced by May 2019.
