The Georgia Trauma Foundation is a relatively new organization, but we’re already busy bringing our vision to life. We invite you to read more about our current initiatives and the sobering facts that make our work so important.

Trauma Research Grant

The Georgia Trauma Foundation in partnership with the Georgia Trauma Commission and the Georgia Association of Emergency Medical Services will initiate a grant program to support trauma research in Georgia. The grant program will provide funding to support trauma research throughout the continuum of care which includes pre-hospital, hospital, and post-hospital care.

We encourage the trauma community to conduct new or ongoing trauma research projects through awards of up to $1 million. Research should focus on expanding knowledge gaps and treatment options for the trauma patient.  This may include research in basic science, clinical, injury prevention or rehabilitation categories.  Basic science should have a direct correlation to patient care with translation from lab to the clinical arena within a relatively short time frame.  We are hopeful that the research will allow for meaningful change in the way trauma care is delivered in the state of Georgia.

Grant Eligibility: All participants within Georgia Trauma System at any point of the care continuum.

Application Period: August 16, 2018 – November 30, 2018
