Travel Grants to AHA Scientific Meetings

AHA Scientific Council Travel Grants recognize promising and outstanding investigators in the early stages of their careers and provide travel assistance for trainees and early career investigators to participate in AHA scientific meetings.

Eligibility Criteria

  • All recipients of travel grants sponsored by an AHA scientific council must be members of the AHA/ASA at the time of application. Learn more about AHA Professional Membership.
  • Winners are not eligible to receive funding for the same grant in subsequent years.
  • Candidates may apply for more than one travel grant; however, an applicant is eligible to receive only one travel grant per meeting per year.
  • Each recipient of AHA council-sponsored awards, regardless of grant category, is eligible to receive only one council-sponsored award each year per AHA scientific meeting. (For example, an Early Career Investigator Award finalist will not be eligible to receive a travel grant for the same meeting.)

Evaluation Criteria

Selection of the awardees for travel grants can be based on scientific excellence (score of an abstract submitted to Scientific Meeting), curriculum vitae, letters of recommendation, or a combination of these.

Prizes

AHA Travel Grants provide travel funding to AHA Scientific Meetings. Please visit the pages below to learn more about specific prize information.
