The CHAT Discovery Award provides funding for trainees to be principal investigators on original work. Recipients will be given funds (maximum of $25,000) to initiate their proposed research projects under the supervision/mentoring of a CANet Network Investigator.




The CHAT Travel Award program is available to CHAT members to travel and present their CANet-related results or outreach initiatives at conferences/workshops/events outside of those sponsored by CANet.




The CHAT Clinical Research Fellowship Program is an opportunity for a physician to obtain advanced training and/or to acquire more specialized expertise not normally acquired during residency or other fellowship training experiences. Training must involve both clinical and research activities.




The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program is designed to support arrhythmia researchers at a pivotal time in their careers. Applicants must be conducting research that is related to CANet’s strategic areas of focus (atrial fibrillation, syncope, sudden cardiac death).




The CHAT Mentorship Award is designed to support the integral role that mentorship from CANet Investigators plays in the development of new highly qualified personnel (HQP).
