    Application Deadline: 5:00 PM CST, Friday, December 15, 2017

    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.

ASGE Endoscopic Training Award

The ASGE Endoscopic Training Award provides Advanced Fellows or Junior Faculty with the opportunity to train outside of their home country with a premier GI endoscopist or group to advance their training. The award assists in underwriting reasonable and customary travel and living expenses for a period of one to three months. The award includes a $5,000 cash stipend prior to the recipient's travel.  Up to three awards will be available annually for North American and International ASGE members.
