The Arthritis Society is pleased to announce the Young Investigator Operating Grant Competition for the 2014-2015 granting year.

Applicants will be required to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) for consideration by the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) prior to being invited to submit a full application. Applications will be judged by a SAC subcommittee and additional experts (as necessary).
In addition to the YIO award, applicants can also request a one-time $25,000 Equipment Grant in the first year of their YIO award.
