APSF/FAER Mentored Research Training Grant

The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) and The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) are now offering the joint APSF/FAER Mentored Research Training Grant (MRTG) to develop the next generation of perioperative patient safety scientists.

This two-year, $300,000 award aims to help anesthesiologists develop the skills and preliminary data they need to become independent investigators in the field of anesthesia patient safety.

This year, those interested in pursuing the APSF/FAER MRTG will need to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) prior to submitting a full application.

Applications for the 2020 APSF/FAER Mentored Research Training Grant (MRTG) have now closed.

More information on applications for the 2021 APSF/FAER Mentored Research Training Grant (MRTG) will be available in Fall of 2020.
