Feigenbaum Cardiovascular Student Travel Grant

The American Society of Echocardiography Education and Research Foundation (ASEF) is pleased to announce the availability of a travel grant for a sonography student enrolled in an accredited CAAHEP cardiovascular ultrasound program.  The travel grant program is designed to provide partial financial support to sonography students who would otherwise be unable to attend the ASE 26th Annual Scientific Sessions in Boston, MA, June 13-16, 2015, or any other 2015 educational course directly sponsored by ASE.  A complimentary registration fee is included with the travel grant award, along with a one year student membership in the American Society of Echocardiography.

ASEF thanks Elsevier Inc. for supporting this grant to honor Dr. Harvey Feigenbaum’s commitment and tenure as the former editor of the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE) for 20 years.

Award Amount  $1,000.00

Application Receipt Deadline  November 30, 2014

Award Announcement  February 2015

Award Payment Date:  February 2015

To Apply:

*  Complete the online Feigenbaum Cardiovascular Sonographer Student Travel Grant form.

Criteria for Award:

*  Students must be actively enrolled in  cardiovascular ultrasound programs accredited by the commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) or in equivalent Canadian or international cardiovascular ultrasound programs* at the time of the grant selection.  Students graduating in the Spring/Summer of 2015 are eligible to apply.

* International candidates will need to submit information describing equivalency of program to CAAHEP standards and/or course work that follows the National Education Curriculum (NEC).

*  This travel grant is based on financial need.  While any sonography student actively enrolled in a CAAHEP cardiovascular program may apply for this travel support, the selection process will give preference to students without sufficient travel funding and who would not otherwise be able to attend an educational course directly sponsored by ASE.  If selected to receive an ASEF student travel grant, the student will be requested to provide a written testimonial and personal photo for use in promotional materials and/or on ASEF’s website.

Students who are nominated for an Alan D. Waggoner Student Scholarship Award may also apply for the UltraEcho, Ltd. Cardiovascular Student Travel Grant and the Feigenbaum Student Travel grant; however, a student will only be selected for one award.

American College of Cardiology Foundation/Merck Research Fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiometabolic Disorders

ScanGrants - Diabetes -

American College of Cardiology Foundation/Merck Research Fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiometabolic Disorders

Deadline: September 22, 2014

Four one-year fellowships will be awarded to support research in adult cardiology. Preference is given to individuals who have had no more than two years of prior full-time experience either in clinical or basic research. Recipients will be expected to pursue a full-time project in clinical research during their year of supported training.

Research Focus: In selecting applications, proposals addressing CVD and Cardiometabolic disorders are encouraged. Included are proposals that address pathophysiology, molecular genetics, metabolic abnormalities leading to cardiovascular disease, hypertension, heart failure, hyperlipidemia, inflammatory mechanisms and new pathways for drug discovery. Proposals focusing on clinically relevant outcomes as a result of the metabolic syndrome, diabetes or obesity are also encouraged. Outcomes studies should focus on clinical/and or systems of care (e.g., quality improvement) interventions, and use outcomes measures of importance to both patients and society, including mortality, significant morbidity or quality of life changes, or economic effects.

Preference for one award will be given to applicants focusing on disparities of care.  Despite increased attention to health disparities at the national, state and community levels, relatively little progress has been made in achieving the vision of eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities.   Since the rates of cardiovascular mortality in the United States are significantly higher for these patients and this is, in fact, the leading cause of death in this demographic, innovative approaches to eliminating these disparities are critical.  In an effort to encourage and support research in this area, proposals will be encouraged that focus on gender, race, geographic, and economic inequalities in cardiovascular care.

Eligibility: Anyone currently in an adult cardiology fellowship training program recognized by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education or the American Osteopathic Association and who has the recommendation and agreement of his/her training program director and institution.

Selection: Judging will be by the ACCF/Research Fellowship Awards Committee. Criteria for selection will include:

Scientific quality of the project;

Relevance to the research focus as described above;

Qualifications and commitment of the applicant; and

The quality of the training environment.

Successful applicants may pursue this protected year of research either within or following their three years of required training. Preference will be given to individuals who:

Will pursue clinical research training and experience directly involving patients or human subjects.

Have had no more than two years of prior full-time research experience either in clinical or basic research.

Will not hold another major external fellowship or salary award, (e.g., from the National Institutes of Health or the American Heart Association) during the ACCF/Merck funded year.

The Award: Four fellowships in the amount of $70,000 each, to be used for salary support, for one year of research to begin July 1, 2015 and run through June 30, 2016.

Funding Source: The ACCF is grateful to the Merck Company Foundation for their continued financial support for these awards.
