HFSA Heart Failure Research Fellowship

About the Research Fellowship

The Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) has established HFSA RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP in heart failure. The purpose of the research fellowship is to develop clinician-investigators in the field of heart failure.


The 1-2 year fellowship is designed for individuals seeking research training in the area of heart failure. At the time of award initiation, the awardee should have no more than 7 post doctoral years (excluding personal leave). Individuals with faculty appointments (above Instructor level or no more than three years at the Assistant Professor level for nursing applicants) are not eligible for this fellowship award. The individual may not have another similar fellowship award from another organization at the same time. During the period of this award the recipient must devote no less than 80% of his/her time to research activities in heart failure.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree in medicine or osteopathy. If the candidate is a cardiology fellow, the candidate must be a full-time fellow in good standing in an ACGME or AOA accredited Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship training program at the time of the initiation of the award and throughout its duration. Candidates shall have been - and shall intend to continue to be - directly involved in patient care. Awards will be restricted to US and Canadian citizens and/or permanent residents.


HFSA will provide research fellowship grant support according to the following guiding principles:

  1. Up to 2 one-year clinical research grants to be funded at a maximum of $40,000 each. These awards may be applied towards project support, salary support, or a combination of the two as deemed best suitable for the individual awardee.

  2. Up to 10 one-year fellowship clinical research mini-grants with allowable funding of up to $10,000 each.
  3. Travel grants are available for HFSA Annual Meeting. For more information contact info@hfsa.org

    Note: Grant considerations will include clinical research for both adult and pediatric heart programs.
