AGA Research Scholar Award (RSA)

Award Info:

This award provides $100,000 per year for three years (totaling $300,000) to early-career faculty (i.e., investigator, instructor, research associate or equivalent) working toward an independent career in digestive disease research.

Applicants for this award must hold an MD, PhD and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MBChB, MBBS, DO), and a full-time faculty or equivalent position at an institution in North America (U.S., Canada or Mexico) by the start date (i.e., July 2022) of this award.


The objective of the AGA Research Foundation Research Scholar Award (RSA) is to support early-career investigators working toward independent and productive research careers in digestive diseases by ensuring that a major proportion of their time is protected for research (i.e., a minimum of 75 percent effort dedicated to the proposed project). The award will support junior faculty (not fellows) who have demonstrated exceptional promise and have some record of accomplishment in research.
