The deadline for submission of 2014 Vision Grant applications has passed. Information on submission of a 2015 Vision Grant application will be posted on this site summer 2014.
The Society's Vision Grant offers up to $50,000 in funding to members conducting basic, translational or clinical research specifically related to the organization's mission to secure the highest quality care for all critically ill and injured patients.
SCCM seeks to sponsor research efforts that will ultimately improve patient care in the ICU. Investigator-initiated research should help advance and improve our understanding of critical illness and patient care.
Interest is broad. Applications are encouraged that focus on expanding our basic knowledge of critical illness, clinical interventions to improve patient outcomes, technical aspects - such as electronic surveillance systems -- as well as studies exploring cultural and educational factors among ICU staff that either impede or facilitate a climate promoting best practice and error reduction. Priority will be given to projects that have broad relevance. Single-center projects, for example, should specifically address the potential to generalize their findings to other critical care settings.
Submission and Deadline
One electronic copy of the application must be received by 5:00 p.m. Central Time on August 31, 2013.
Please submit this electronic copy to Vision Grant, utilizing the "Request a delivery receipt" and "Request a read receipt" functions.
All submissions are to be in PDF format and compiled as one document.
