The Allergists’ Foundation Community Grant Program

The Allergists’ Foundation is focusing its programming on empowering community practicing allergists on the front lines of patient care.

We are funding innovative projects that address barriers to asthma and allergy care, particularly in underserved populations.

“Today more than ever, practicing allergists play a critical role in ensuring the health and well-being of our communities,” said Stanley Fineman, MD, MBA, FACAAI, 2021 president of The Allergists’ Foundation, when the program was first established. “Our Community Grant Program is designed to inspire creative, innovative approaches to addressing the many challenges faced by community practicing allergists. We’re looking for projects that have a clinical application and the potential to improve the care for allergy and asthma in every community.”

Awards are given annually to active members of the College* to support projects that address challenges faced by community practicing allergists. Grants are awarded in the following two categories:

  1. Planning/exploratory projects (up to $10,000 for 12 months) to address issues that have not been fully explored, for which we need data gathering.
  2. Implementation grants (up to $25,000 for 12-24 months) for projects in which preliminary data has been gathered and initial planning has taken place. This will help take the work to the “next level.”

*All active ACAAI physician members in the United States and Canada, including Fellows-in-Training in accredited programs, are eligible to apply. Special consideration will be given to physicians in early stages of their careers (in training or within 10 years of practice).
