2025 RJOS Scholarships, Fellowships, and Grants

$150,000 OREF/RJOS Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Disparities in Orthopaedic Health Care Research Grant - Support funded by the Zimmer Biomet Foundation

This new grant provides $150,000 to stimulate clinical research and provide funding for promising studies to find solutions to problems of diversity, equity, inclusion, and disparities in orthopaedics. The inequities are well established. We are seeking research that will offer practical and actionable solutions to improve the current culture and outcomes.

Studies addressing the following areas are encouraged, although other areas of disparity in orthopaedic practice will be considered:

  • Solutions to reduce gender inequities in orthopaedic care.
  • Strategies to reduce gender inequities in orthopaedic research.
  • Solutions to reduce injury differences/diagnoses influenced by gender.
  • Solutions to reduce sex differences in sports injuries.
  • Promotion of diversity in orthopaedic Surgical Training.
