Awards and Grants

Endoscopic Research Award
Applications are currently not being accepted.

The ASGE Endoscopic Research Awards are offered to physicians for projects in basic, translational and clinical endoscopic research. ASGE is particularly interested in endoscopic research pertaining to Barrett’s esophagus, capsule endoscopy, colorectal cancer, endoscopic issues specific to under-represented minorities (defined as women and individuals of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds), controlled trials in endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic optical recognition techniques, measuring quality in endoscopy, NOTES™, and novel endoscopic treatments for obesity. Requests for funding “pilot” projects that will lead to additional studies as well as larger, more definitive clinical trials will be considered. Grant applications from both the academic and private practice setting are encouraged. 

Quality in Endoscopy Research Award
Applications are currently not being accepted.

This grant will measure or improve quality of care (clinical or patient‑oriented or physician behavior outcomes) and/or efficiency in gastrointestinal endoscopy. The ASGE Research Committee will consider feasibility/pilot/validation studies if the intention on their use for further research is clear. Funding may be requested for up to $75,000 and up to two years of study. Grant applications from both the academic and private practice setting are encouraged.

Endoscopic Research Career Development Award
Applications are currently not being accepted.

This award provides salary and/or research and educational support necessary for the investigator to enhance his/her career development in endoscopic research. It is intended for faculty (existing or incoming) who have demonstrated promise and have some record of accomplishment in research. The grant will provide up to a total of $140,000 (up to $70,000 per year for two (2) years), to cover training and research expenses, and at least 30% protected time funded at up to $40,000 USD above the NIH salary cap for Associate Professor (See NIH Salary cap link: plus fringe, or the current fiscal year’s salary for the candidate, whichever is less.

Covidien Senior Investigator Mentoring Award 
Applications are currently not being accepted.

The purpose of the Covidien Senior Investigator Mentoring Award is to provide support for investigators to act as research mentors in the field of endoscopy for clinical fellows and/or junior faculty devoted to furthering the cause of endoscopic research. The applicant should already have extramural funding and institutional commitment to match the Covidien  grant’s protected time. This Covidien grant will fund up to 20% protected time (based on NIH salary caps, and up to the maximum amount allowed by the amount of this award) to mentor mentees/trainees in the proposed endoscopic research projects.
