The AGA Research Foundation is pleased to announce an important addition to its prestigious awards portfolio. The AGA Research Scholar Award in Digestive Disease Health Disparities supports early career faculty dedicated to investigating digestive diseases or disorders that disproportionately affect racial or ethnic minority populations in North America.
Applicants must have a full-time faculty (or equivalent) position and may be performing any type of research (clinical, basic or translational). Awardees will receive a total of $300,000 over three years with funding to commence in July 2021. The deadline to apply is Nov. 9, 2020.
This award is just one example of how AGA is helping to improve patient care for those who need it most. Support AGA Giving Day and learn more about the AGA Equity Project — a multi-year effort spanning all aspects of our organization to achieve equity and eradicate disparities in digestive diseases.
