Research Grants

The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research provides research grant funding for anesthesiologists and anesthesiology trainees to gain additional training in basic science, clinical and translational, health services and education research. For early career anesthesiologists interested in pursuing careers as physician-scientists, FAER grants can be an important starting point. These grants aim to help anesthesiologists develop the skills and preliminary data they need to become independent investigators.

FAER awards grants annually through two funding cycles. The deadlines are February 15 and August 15. Click here to apply.
