AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards

Scientists who are conducting research to prevent and treat CHDs are encouraged to submit applications for the next round of funding of the American Heart Association and The Children's Heart Foundation's joint Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards. The application categories align with standard AHA Predoctoral Fellowship, Postdoctoral Fellowship, Career Development Awards, and Transformational Project Awards.
