Grant Description
Fellowships of up to $50,000 to USA and Canada MDs and DOs affiliated with qualified institutions to expand their research training and experience in plastic surgery. First-time applicants are required to complete a writing module prior to applying. Funding is intended for applicants who already have active funding for the research project. The goal of the program is to foster the growth of research in plastic surgery.

The PSF supports investigators from the beginning of their careers, during residency, and as they advance to becoming experienced and well-established plastic surgeons. The purpose of the Research Fellowship Grant is to encourage research and academic career development in plastic surgery. This grant is for salary support only for a Resident or Fellow to obtain training and experience in research, under the guidance of an experienced mentor. The application must describe a structured research training plan, in addition to a research project. Only already funded research projects will be considered. Evaluation of the application will place emphasis on the research training experience, research project, applicant potential, and mentor qualifications and commitment to mentoring. Research Fellowship grants must be used for salary support only.
