    ASBMR Rising Star Award


    ASBMR Rising Star Award               

    The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR)’s mission is to promote excellence in bone, mineral and musculoskeletal research, foster integration of clinical and basic science, and facilitate the translation of that science to health care and clinical practice.

    The ASBMR Rising Star Award provides funding to promising young scientists and physician-scientists in the bone field who have already been recognized by individual NIH “K awards” and other similar international professional development programs. The award provides additional funding to the awardees to successfully implement their programs, stay in the field and transition to independent investigators. Grant submissions can be basic, clinical or translational and the primary focus must be on bone, mineral and musculoskeletal research.

    Please note: Eligibility criteria has been expanded. We accept applications from individual K awardees (K01, K02, K08, K23, K25) and international equivalent within the first two years of their award.  Please note that the K99/R00 is not eligible for the Rising Star Award.  

    This award is open to US and international ASBMR members.  International members living outside the United States are encouraged to apply.

    The application period for this award is closed. We will announce the new application period in December 2016.  

    Amount of Each Award: One time award of $60,000 (direct costs, US dollars). No indirect costs to institution.
