The Society continues to promote research into the causes of and treatments for otolaryngic diseases by providing financial support for the research efforts of young otolaryngologists. The Society has awarded more than $4 million to otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons in support of clinical and basic research. These competitive research grant programs have included past funding for resident research projects and research training grants, and new career development grants and clinical scientist awards. The Society focuses grant funding on the research career development of young otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons.

Triological Society/American College of Surgeons Clinical Scientist Development Awards

The Triological Society and the American College of Surgeons combined competitive grant program provides supplemental funding to otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons who have received a new NIH Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (K08/K23) or have an existing award with a minimum of 3 years remaining in the funding period as of October 1 of the application year.

This award is a means to facilitate the research career development of otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons, with the expectation that the awardee will have sufficient pilot data to submit a competitive R01 proposal prior to the conclusion of the K award. This award provides financial support in the amount of $80,000 per year for up to five years, or for the remainder of the term of existing grants, to supplement the K08/K23 award. Funding is dependent upon receipt of meritorious applications. Applicants must be Associate Fellows or Fellows of the American College of Surgeons.
