AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards

AHA Logo - June 2019   CHD Logo - June 2019

About the Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards

The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) has joined with the American Heart Association (AHA) to establish the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards.  Together, the AHA and CHF are offering a jointly-funded request for applications (PDF) for the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards (CHDRAs).  The purpose of the CHDRAs is to provide support for investigators who are actively conducting research directly related to advancing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of CHDs. The joint RFA and funding opportunity will further this goal by offering competitive research grants in basic, clinical, population, or translational research related to CHDs.

The American Heart Association (AHA) and The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) announce this joint Request for Applications (RFA) to fund the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards (CHDRAs). The AHA and CHF share common priorities and interests in investing in congenital heart defects (CHD) research.

Predoctoral Fellowships, Postdoctoral Fellowships, Career Development Awards, and Transformational Project Awards will be funded through this RFA.

In addition to the four funding mechanisms offered via this joint AHA-CHF Request for Applications, the AHA's Collaborative Sciences Award  might also be of interest to applicants.
