About the Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards

The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) has joined with the American Heart Association (AHA) to establish the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards. Together, the AHA and CHF are offering a jointly-funded request for applications (PDF) for the AHA/CHF Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards (CHDRAs). The purpose of the CHDRAs is to provide support for investigators who are actively conducting research directly related to advancing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of CHDs. The joint RFA and funding opportunity will further this goal by offering competitive research grants in basic, clinical, population, or translational research related to CHDs. Predoctoral Fellowships and Postdoctoral Fellowships will be funded through the RFA.
