The following awards require submission of an abstract to an ASIP topic category at the Experimental Biology 2018 Meeting from an ASIP trainee member (undergraduate/graduate/medical/veterinary student, pathology resident, postdoctoral fellow). For details on abstract submission, visit: experimentalbiology.org/2018/Abstracts/Abstract-Submission.aspx
During the abstract submission process, applicants will be given the opportunity to apply for ASIP Trainee Travel Awards. ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE ASIP TRAINEE MEMBERS AND MUST FIRST APPLY FOR AN ASIP TRAINEE AWARD! Once you apply for the ASIP Trainee Travel Award you may apply for additional awards (excellence in research in the areas of cardiovascular, histochemical techniques; promoting diversity in science) depending on your membership category and eligibility. The ASIP membership information you provide when you submit your abstract is critically important for the online system to determine which other travel awards you can apply for. If you have any questions about your membership category status, contact email@example.com before you submit your abstract. General information about awards for undergraduate students and pre- and post-doctoral trainee ASIP members can be found at asip.org/awards ASIP Trainee Travel Awards.
To promote the entry of young scientists into the mainstream of the basic / translational/ clinical science community and to encourage the participation of young investigative pathologists in ASIP events, the American Society for Investigative Pathology offers a robust trainee travel awards program. Trainee Travel Awards recognize excellence in research and help offset travel expenses for ASIP Trainee members (Undergraduate Students, Pre- and Post-doctoral Trainees) to attend the ASIP Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology (EB). The ASIP Program Committee selects recipients based on their scientific abstracts. Abstracts are selected for presentation in poster sessions and/or minisymposia. Please note that applicants for ASIP Trainee Travel Awards for the ASIP Annual Meeting at EB MUST submit their abstract(s) to ASIP topic categories. Preference will be given to trainees whose abstract sponsors are Regular or Next-Generation Scientist members of ASIP. Award stipends range from $250 to $750.
In 2013, Dr. Avrum I. Gotlieb, ASIP member and past President, established the Gotlieb Family Fund for Undergraduate Education in Pathobiology to support an undergraduate student with a $750 travel award to attend an ASIP scientific meeting. Like the other ASIP Trainee Travel Awards, an abstract must be submitted to ASIP topic categories at the annual meeting. Applicants must be undergraduate student members of ASIP. Undergraduate students are also eligible for other ASIP Trainee travel awards.
To promote the entry of under-represented scientists into the basic / translational/ clinical science community, the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) has developed Promoting Diversity in Science ASIP Trainee Travel Awards. These awards honor excellence in biomedical research focused on understanding mechanisms and classification of disease and provide travel awards to ASIP Trainee members (undergraduate students, pre-doctoral candidates, post-doctoral trainees) who identify with a restricted list of under-represented-in-science ethnic groups (see asip.org/awards/diversity.cfm) to encourage participation in ASIP scientific meetings and conferences. Awardees are selected on the basis of merit by the ASIP Program Committee. Award stipends range from $250 to $750.
The ASIP International Trainee Travel Award promotes the entry of young scientists from economically under-developed countries into the mainstream of the science community and encourages the participation of young investigative pathologists in meetings and courses sponsored or supported by the American Society for Investigative Pathology. Candidates must be ASIP trainee members who reside in and are citizens of Hinari A countries (see who.int/hinari/eligibility/en) and must submit their abstract to an ASIP topic category. Award stipends range from $250 to $750.
To promote the entry of young scientists who are studying cardiovascular pathobiology into the mainstream of the basic / translational/ clinical science community, ASIP offers special trainee travel awards for excellence in cardiovascular research. Candidates must be ASIP trainee members whose abstracts include data related to cardiovascular pathobiology and must submit their abstract to an ASIP topic category. Awardees are selected on the basis of merit by the ASIP Program Committee. Award stipends range from $250 to $750.
To promote the entry of young scientists who use histochemical techniques into the mainstream of the basic science community and to encourage the participation of young investigative pathologists in the ASIP Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology, the Histochemical Society is offering a limited number of Trainee Travel Awards of $750 each to offset travel expenses for trainee members of the Histochemical Society and/or ASIP to attend the Experimental Biology Meeting. The ASIP Program Committee will select the recipients based on the scientific abstracts submitted to ASIP topic categories, which must include data based on the use of histochemical techniques. Abstracts will be selected for presentation in either poster sessions or in minisymposia.
