AMA Seed Grant Research Program

AMA Seed Grant Research Program

Grants from $2,500 to $5,000 are offered to medical students, residents and fellows to conduct basic science or clinical research projects on cardiovascular/pulmonary diseases, pancreatic cancer, and neoplastic Diseases.


  • Applicants must be a medical student, physician resident or fellow of an accredited US medical school or institution; they must also be either a US citizen or a permanent resident of the US. Projects must be applicant-conceived, rather than ongoing research of their mentor or Principal Investigator.
  • This program is open to both AMA and non-AMA members. Membership with the AMA does not factor into the grant selection process.
