The Section presents four annual awards: the Founders Award, the Research Fellowship Award, the Young Investigator Award, and the Education Travel Grant.
The Founders Award (named after the "founders" of the Section) recognizes outstanding contributions in the field of pediatric cardiology and cardiovascular surgery.
||The Research Fellowship Award is awarded to a trainee in an accredited US pediatric cardiology fellowship training program to promote the understanding of a basic mechanism of cardiovascular disease in the young. The Research Fellowship Award provides a $35,000 stipend to reward the recipient for his or her efforts in basic science or clinical research.
Supported by an educational

The Young Investigator Awards are given for the two best scientific abstracts presented at the National Conference & Exhibition meeting in clinical research and basic science categories. First place ($400) and second place ($250) awards are given for best content and presentation of clinical and/or basic science research.
First place ($400) and second place ($250) awards are given for best content and presentation of clinical and/or basic science research. Current residents, fellows-in-training or other physicians-in-training who have completed their fellowship training program within one year (and whose project is relevant to pediatric cardiology) are eligible for the Young Investigator competition.
Education Travel Grants provide funding for travel expenses to the AAP National Conference & Exhibition for the top Young Investigator abstract submissions. Travel Grants are limited to current pediatric cardiology or cardiovascular surgery fellows-in-training.
