Research Grants

FAER provides grant funding to develop the research careers of anesthesiologists who seek to answer important questions and make scientific discoveries in the areas of anesthesiology, perioperative medicine, health care delivery and medical education research.

Many anesthesiologists who have received FAER grant funding have gone on to have successful careers as independently-funded physician scientists who advance medicine through newfound knowledge.

Current funding opportunities include Mentored Research Training Grants ($175,000), Research Fellowship Grants ($75,000) and Research in Education Grants ($100,000). The next application deadline is February 15.
