About the Scholar's Program

The award is designed to augment ongoing research by AAAM members, collaborators, and student trainees, although compelling pilot projects will be considered.

The purpose of the AAAM Scholars Program is three-fold:

  • To encourage original research on topics of interest to the AAAM
  • To foster the next generation of automotive/transportation safety researchers
  • To encourage participation of AAAM members in the active mentorship of young researchers in the field of traffic safety
Eligibility Criteria

The award is open to degree seeking students currently enrolled at accredited institutions granting MS, MPH, PhD, MD or MD/PhD degrees, and conducting research in the areas aligned with the mission of AAAM. Because the award is designed to augment current research being conducted by the student, applicants must be no less than 1 year from degree completion at the time of the due date. Applicants and mentors must be members of AAAM.

However, researchers who are interested in submitting a proposal but are not currently members of AAAM are invited to apply for the award and also include their membership applications as part of the submission. If there are co-mentors, only one mentor must be a member, but the other is highly encouraged to apply for membership ( Membership fees for the student awardee will be waived for one year following receipt of the AAAM Scholars Award.
