Objective: To investigate the demographics of CORE grant recipients (Centralized Otolaryngology Research Efforts) over the last decade and evaluate disparity among recipients as compared with otolaryngology overall. To assess whether procurement of a grant predicts pursuit of an academic career. Study Design: Analysis of grant recipients’ bibliometrics. Setting: Academic medical center. Methods: The list of recipients of grants from 2010 to 2019 was obtained from the website of the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery. Demographics of recipients were collected through an internet search, including gender, race, residency program, and h-index. Recipients from 2010 were searched to determine current academic faculty rank. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to compare these factors with otolaryngology overall. Results: The distribution of gender among recipients over the last decade remained nearly constant, with no significant difference versus residents in otolaryngology (P >.05). However, there were significantly more female recipients when adjusted for gender differences in the field overall (P <.01). Asians were relatively overrepresented, while Black and Hispanic residents were underrepresented (P <.01). Many recipients (52.6%) trained at institutions recognized as the best training programs with reputations for quality research output. The h-index of recipients decreased over the last decade (P <.01). The h-index of duplicate winners was significantly higher than those of nonduplicate winners (P <.01). After adjusting for gender and rank, recipients were significantly more likely to hold academic positions (P <.01). Conclusion: CORE grants are favorably distributed as related to gender and racial disparities, and recipients frequently go on to achieve high levels of academic success.
