Welcome to the ABMS REF Grant Submission Site

The ABMS Research and Education Foundation (REF) is seeking grant proposals under two themes: General Certification and Diagnostic Excellence Through Certification. Each grant is for up to two years. The Request for Proposal (RFP) application materials contain details on the themes, the project and proposal requirements, important dates, and more. Please consult the RFP before completing your application.


The application will consist of two phases: a Letter of Intent (LOI) phase and a full proposal. ABMS anticipates asking about 15 LOI applicants to submit full proposals, with a plan to fund up to eight.  


Steps in the LOI Phase of the Grant Cycle

  • Assemble investigator team
  • Draft specific aims 
  • Consult with relevant ABMS Member Board(s)
  • Finish and submit Letter of Intent

LOI Submission Deadline: Jan 30, 2024 

Applicants are encouraged to submit early to allow adequate time to make any corrections to errors found in the application during the submission process. No corrections are permitted after the deadline.
