AAOS IDEA Grant Program

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) announced a call for proposals for the AAOS IDEA Grant Program ®, a multi-year initiative to inspire diversity, equity and access across the field of orthopaedics. Now in its third year, the program will award $300,000 in 2025 to help address decades of inertia surrounding persistent disparities across orthopaedics and, in turn, better serve patients nationwide.

“The programs selected for an AAOS IDEA Grant will help to cultivate meaningful and measurable opportunities across orthopaedics, acting as a springboard for change within our profession,” said AAOS Diversity Advisory Board Chair Holly Tyler-Paris Pilson, MD, FAAOS, FAOA. “This is not about checking a box; this call for proposals opens a door for funding directly to the local and regional orthopaedic programs and organizations who are training the current and next generation.”

The AAOS IDEA Grant Program tracks encompass a wide net to better fund and support a diverse pipeline of individuals who pursue orthopaedics as a profession; foster DEI initiatives for community-based or academic orthopaedic surgeons; and expand the availability of AAOS educational and networking opportunities to diverse students and practicing orthopaedic surgeons. Diversity focus areas of the program include gender, race/ethnicity, LGBTQ+, socioeconomic, veteran status and disability. Program funds will be allocated across four tracks, each with a different DEI focus and target recipient. Additional funding from AAOS supporters may be added to extend the reach of the initiative.
Grant proposals will remain open now through June 17, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. CT.

Applicants are encouraged to review the evaluation criteria and general application terms at aaos.org/IDEA. Grant recipients will be responsible for providing an outcomes report to AAOS to measure impact at the end of the funding period.
