Research Support Application

The New England Society for Vascular Surgery would like to announce a funding opportunity for clinical research support. This funding will support a broad spectrum of clinical research. Studies to be considered should focus on improving outcomes and care in the region. The VSGNE model is acknowledged by the Society as an excellent system for this type of work, but the NESVS will consider all types of clinical research. This funding announcement is geared towards vascular fellows and residents, as well as young investigators early in their careers. 

Clinical research proposals can be submitted by anyone who is a member of the NESVS or who has an NESVS member willing to sponsor the project. The application form must be submitted to the NESVS Executive Council for review. The Council has approved budgetary support of up to $10,000 for 1-3 years.

All applications will be accepted up until Wednesday, April 1, 2020 (11:59 pm). Completed applications and supporting materials should be emailed to (Subject: 2021 Research Grant Application). Grants will be awarded at the Annual Meeting.
