Since 1949, the American Heart Association has spent more than $3.2 billion on research to increase knowledge about cardiovascular disease and stroke.  Research is one of the American Heart Association’s top priorities, and we are 2nd only to the U.S. government in funding cardiovascular disease research. An important role for the American Heart Association is the nurturing of beginning and mid-career investigators, but grant opportunities also are available for senior scientists.


The Founder’s Affiliate of the American Heart Association is a regional group – funding research at institutions in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. Over the past two years alone, the Affiliate has provided more than $22 million in new grants to 192 post-docs, beginning scientists and senior scientists.  Although Vermont has done well receiving AHA grants in recent years, we can always improve!  Come to learn from American Heart Association Research staff about the AHA’s research program, grant opportunities and grant-writing tips. Topics to be addressed include:


  • What kind of research does the American Heart Association fund?  Basic Science, Clinical Science and Population Science
  • Why is research funding so important to AHA?
  • Grant opportunities available –

(Pre Doctoral Fellowships, Post Doctoral Fellowships, Scientist Development Grants, Grants in Aid, Clinical Research Grants and more)
