Research Seed Funding Initiative

The application deadline for this award has passed.
Please check back in December 2012 for 2013 information.

A list of Award Recipients can be found here.


The AAPM is pleased to offer the Research Seed Funding Initiative which provides start-up funds for research-oriented medical physicists. Two $25,000, one-year awards will be made in 2012. The awards are intended to provide funds to develop exciting investigator-initiated concepts, which will hopefully lead to successful longer term project funding from the NIH or equivalent funding sources. It is expected that funding will begin on July1 of the year in which the award is made, and that subsequent research results will be submitted for presentation at future AAPM meetings.

The awards are not intended to provide salary support for the applicant, however any other research-related expenses, including travel to scientific meetings, will be supported. At the end of the 12-month period a report should be forwarded to the AAPM, along with itemized expenses. The award will not support indirect costs. Any unspent funds should be returned to the AAPM.
