Research Grants & Awards
Through a generous grant from the ACP Foundation, the ACP offers three separate grants aimed at promoting research in phlebology and developing future research leaders in the field.
The awards, focused on three distinct audiences, are:
($24,000 for 12 months)
For clinical phlebologists who wish to initiate a clinical research project of importance to phlebology.
($45,000 for 12 months)
For young investigators in graduate-level medical or research programs who are not yet professionally established in the phlebological sciences and wish to gain insight into scientific investigation in the field of phlebology.
($70,000 for 12 months)
For junior faculty, typically at institutions of higher learning, with a career interest in phlebology research to initiate a basic, pre-clinical, or pilot clinical research project of importance to the field of phlebology. Associate professors and full professors are not eligible, and applicants must not have received major grant support exceeding $50,000.
In addition to the above three grants, the ACP offers two additional grants. The JOBST Research Award of the Advancement of Phlebology is a $15,000 annual grant for general research in Phlebology. The Walter P. de Groot, MD Clinical Phlebology Fellowship has two areas of focus: domestic member physicians wanting to advance their phlebological skills, and international physicians wishing to attend the ACP Annual Congress.
