The prestigious Research Scholar Awards offer each scientist a total of $225,000 to help support his or her research over a three-year period. The goal of the Research Scholar Awards is to guarantee the perpetuation of strong science through the encouragement of young physician investigators and ultimately to improve patient care through digestive diseases research.

These extremely competitive awards ensure that bright, young physicians and scientists devote their careers to advancing the field of digestive health through research. Awards are based on the qualifications of the candidate, the quality of the candidate's research proposal and the commitment of the candidate's institution to protect 70 percent of his or her time for research.

The Research Scholar Awards program was launched in 1984 to provide crucial early support to investigators who show promise in academic gastroenterological research. The program's premise recognized that resources awarded early on could provide a stable platform from which future research funding would be derived. During and after their time as an AGA Research Scholar, recipients have made important contributions to the field of gastroenterology and many former award recipients have gone on to hold distinguished appointments in major medical institutions in the U.S. and Canada.

Since 1984, the AGA and its Foundation has awarded more than $20 million to fund 150 Research Scholars and has provided a total of $38 million in grant funding. The 2009 Scholars were chosen by a distinguished 30-person national advisory committee chaired by David Brenner, MD, Dean and Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences at University of California, San Diego. Members of the committee include leading gastroenterologists from the Harvard University Medical School, Mayo Clinic, Stanford University School of Medicine, University
