Community Service Grants

In 1998, D. Robert McCaffree, MD, Master FCCP, created the Governors Community Service Awards during his term as the President of the American College of Chest Physicians. Support is given to nonprofit and nongovernmental agencies in which health care professionals generously donate their time and medical expertise.

Distinguished Scholar Grant

The GlaxoSmithKline Distinguished Scholar in Respiratory Health is expected to complete an investigative project that has significant impact on respiratory health in the clinical, translational, and/or population health arenas. The scholar is encouraged but not required to take advantage of the extensive resources of CHEST, such as the following: (1) collaborations with leaders in the CHEST Airways Disorders Network or various sections; (2) CHEST educational material; or (3) CHEST simulation resources.

The GlaxoSmithKline Distinguished Scholar in Respiratory Health will have a 3-year opportunity to examine issues that relate to patients with respiratory disease. The grant is intended to permit the investigation of issues that are not easily supported by traditional, shorter-term funding opportunities.

Grant amount: $150,000, for 3 years
This grant is supported by an endowment from GlaxoSmithKline.

Research Grants

Each year, the CHEST Foundation seeks to support our members by hosting research grants with community-focused projects. Scientific research projects must also demonstrate how they will have a positive impact on the lung health of a community (eg, community identity, community needs, community impact). Since our first grant award in 1996, we have awarded $12 million in support to 1,000 recipients in over 40 different research topics around the world. Through our grant-making efforts, we aim to embolden young investigators seeking research funding and support projects that will lead to breakthroughs in the treatment of chest diseases and patient care.
