CHEST Foundation Invites Applications for Community Service Grants

As the charitable foundation for the American College of Chest Physicians, the CHEST Foundation has a mission of championing lung health by supporting clinical research, patient education, and community service. Since 1996, the foundation has awarded more than a thousand grants totaling over $10 million in funding for clinical research and community-service projects.

As part of this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its CHEST Foundation Community Service Grant program. Through the problem, grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded to healthcare professionals in nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations who donate their time and medical expertise to community-based projects that demonstrate a clear positive impact on the lung health of that community and have the potential for long-term sustainability and reproducibility.

Projects may focus on K-12 student education, patient/caregiver education, community health education/awareness, healthcare worker education, and clinic/medical center training/education.

To be eligible, applicants currently must be currently providing a voluntary service to a nonprofit or nongovernmental organization. In addition, the organization or service project’s primary intent must be to provide community service and not to conduct research. CHEST membership is preferred but not required.

See the CHEST Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: September 8, 2017
