AFSH to Sponsor Two Members to Attend U.S. Bone and Joint Initiative Grant Workshop Series

Grant Writing Workshops

Deadlines January 15 and July 15

The American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand will sponsor two ASSH members to attend the US Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) Young Investigators Initiative and Workshop Program. This program is designed to provide early-career clinical investigators an opportunity to work with experienced researchers in our field and to assist them in securing funding and other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career. This workshop series is open to promising junior faculty, senior fellows or post-doctoral researchers who wish to secure funding for hypothesis driven research. It is also open to senior fellows that are doing research and have a faculty appointment in place or confirmed.

Any ASSH active or candidate member may apply. Applications should be sent directly to the USBJI, and applicants should clearly state on their paperwork that they are an ASSH member. If selected, the Hand Society will reimburse for travel and the registration fee. For more information please visit the US Bone and Joint Initiative website.
