Research Grants

The Research Committee of the Arthroscopy Association of North America solicits and reviews applications for research grants in the fall.  These grants are for clinical or basic science research in the field of arthroscopic surgery or disorders amenable to arthroscopic treatment.  The Research Grant amounts vary depending on need and quality of work submitted.  Grants up to $25,000 will be considered.

We are no longer accepting grant applications for 2016 - the deadline to submit was November 1.  Please consider applying next year.

The criteria for evaluation are:

  • Scientific quality, design and data analysis
  • Relevance to Arthroscopy
  • Originality
  • Clarity, composition, completeness and organization of the application
