research Grant Eligibility Criteria

The objective of the AAO research grant program is to promote osteopathic research and provide the finances to initiate osteopathic research projects. The intent is proof-of-concept publications or preliminary data to support funding from larger organizations (American Osteopathic Association [AOA], National Institutes of Health, etc.) to conduct more extensive studies and clinical trials. Similar to the AOA’s eligibility requirements, the principal investigator for each study must be:

  • an osteopathic physician (DO), or
  • an MD, PhD or other individual holding an equivalent doctoral degree (Applicants from non–AOA-affiliated institutions must have a DO as key personnel on the research team.)

Ineligible applicants:

  • medical students, residents, interns and fellows
  • investigators conducting research outside of the United States
  • investigators conducting research on non-U.S. populations
  • principal investigators currently funded by the AAO
