Applications for New Community Practice Grant Program Due March 1

The clock is ticking to apply for a new SVS Foundation grant program aimed squarely at improving patient health by way of our community practice members.

Applications are due March 1 for the new Community Awareness and Prevention Project Grant, intended to help members in community practice environments conduct projects that address wellness and disease prevention and emphasize patient education, public awareness or risk assessment.

Awardees will receive up to $10,000 for an innovative, community-based initiative. Priority will go to projects that will benefit under-served areas or that include community partnerships. Projects should lead to programs that can be replicated and include plans to go forward beyond the grant period.

Applicants must be active or candidate SVS members practicing in a community hospital or other community setting. They will be notified by May 1, and winners will be recognized at the Vascular Annual Meeting in June Read more at vsweb.org/CommunityGrants.

The new program complements the Foundation’s expanded mission, which includes not only basic research but also increased public awareness about vascular disease and treatments and efforts to improve patient vascular care.

Other Award Applications Are Also Due Soon

Application deadlines are near for three other SVS Foundation awards: the Clinical Research Seed Grants and the E.J. Wylie traveling Fellowship (March 1); and the Wylie Scholar Award (March2), co-sponsored by Vascular Cures. Learn more at vsweb.org/SVSAwards.
