Collaborative Exchange Grant

The ORS is dedicated to fostering orthopaedic research through supporting interaction between research institutions. Towards this goal, the ORS is pleased to announce the ORS Collaborative Exchange Grant. This grant was established in 2010 to provide investigators at any stage of their career an opportunity to visit a research lab for the purpose of collaboration and knowledge exchange. The grant can be used towards travel, accommodation, and living costs for investigators to visit research institutions to foster collaboration in orthopaedic related-research areas and to facilitate the exchange of new research methodologies and techniques.


  • Honorarium will vary depending on recipient’s needs. Grants to a total of $7,500 will be given each year.


  • An applicant must be an ORS member* in good standing
  • Applications will be accepted from applicant at all stages of their career
  • The period of exchange is expected to be for a minimum of 2 weeks and may be spread over more than 1 visit. Support for longer periods of exchange are also welcomed.
