2022 Fellows Grant Award Program

Create a New Account


The Fellows Grant Award Program (FGAP) is intended to support research proposals submitted to national or international funding agencies that were scored, and generally well received, but did not receive funding. It is assumed that most of these proposals will have been NIH in nature, but proposals to the NSF, other federal agencies, and international granting organizations also qualify.The program will provide short-term funding for either established or young investigators who have submitted a peer reviewed grant application to a major funding sponsor within the last 15 months and received a full review but were not funded. The Principal Investigator (PI) must be an AAA member in good standing for the past 2 years (co-PI's, co-I, or collaborators need not be members). 

Up to three grants will be awarded annually in amounts not to exceed $25,000. Each grant will be awarded for a period of one year, without opportunity for a no-cost extension. The FGAP will provide up to 30 awards of $25,000 each over 10 years, totaling up to $750,000. New FGAP applications will be solicited through a general announcement to the membership on September 1st of each year.

For a detailed overview of the award, please review the FGAP Overview and Eligibility Criteria.
