American Academy for Pediatrics: CATCH ProgramDeadline: January 15, 2020
The Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) program is a flagship initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The program supports pediatricians and residents to collaborate within their communities to advance the health of all children. CATCH awards seed funding for planning and implementation grants to pediatricians. CATCH is supported by a network of volunteer pediatricians who provide technical assistance to those seeking funding as well as support once a project has started.
Amount: Fellows/fellowship trainees receive $10,000 for planning or implementation projects, while residents are awarded $2,000.
Eligibility: AAP pediatrician fellow/AAP fellowship trainee; AAP national and chapter member (must be member prior to funding being awarded); general pediatricians, pediatric medical sub-specialists, pediatric surgical sub-specialists, and fellowship trainees from the United States and its territories and Canada; and residents who are in their 1st or 2nd year of residency on November 1. Third-year residents may apply as co-applicants, or as primary applicants if they will be chief resident in their 4th year.
