Trainee Travel Awards to Attend the ASIP 2017 Annual Meeting

Information & Deadlines
The following awards require submission of an abstract to an ASIP topic category at the Experimental Biology 2017 Meeting from an ASIP trainee member (undergraduate student, graduate/medical/veterinary student, pathology resident, postdoctoral fellow). For details on abstract submission, visit: www.asip.org/meetings/2017/abstracts.cfm

The Abstract Submission Deadline was November 17, 2016
The Award Application Deadline was November 17, 2016

How to Apply
During the abstract submission process, applicants will be given the opportunity to apply for ASIP Trainee Travel Awards. ALL APPLICANTS MUST FIRST APPLY FOR AN ASIP TRAINEE TRAVEL AWARD! Once you apply for this award you may apply for additional awards (excellence in research in the areas of cardiovascular, histochemical techniques, liver pathobiology, neoplasia; 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 membership@asip.org BEFORE YOU SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT.

ASIP Trainee Travel Awards
To promote the entry of young scientists into the mainstream of the basic 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 Scientific Review Committee for the meeting/conference 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.

ASIP Experimental Pathologist-in-Training (EPIT) Award and ASIP Experimental Pathologist-in-Graduate Training Award (EPIGT)
The EPIT is a prestigious award presented to an ASIP trainee member who is a postdoctoral fellow (including pathology residents and research and clinical fellows) and who has excelled in investigative efforts in studying mechanisms of disease, as evidenced by an abstract submission to the ASIP annual meeting (these abstracts MUST be submitted to ASIP topic categories), an extended research report (this report should not exceed 750 words nor include more than one table), and a letter of recommendation attesting to the candidate's role in the work and potential as a biomedical research investigator. The award includes: a certificate of achievement for the winning abstract presented at the ASIP Annual Meeting Awards Presentation at the Experimental Biology Meeting), a $1,500 stipend and complimentary meeting registration.

The EPIGT is a prestigious award presented to an ASIP trainee member who is a graduate student in a PhD training program, MD/PhD training program or MD training program who has excelled in investigative efforts in studying mechanisms of disease, as evidenced by an abstract submission to the ASIP annual meeting (these abstracts MUST be submitted to ASIP topic categories), an extended research report (this report should not exceed 750 words nor include more than one table), and a letter of recommendation attesting to the candidate's role in the work and potential as a biomedical research investigator. The award includes: a certificate of achievement for the winning abstract (presented at the ASIP Annual Meeting Awards Presentation at the Experimental Biology Meeting), a $1,500 stipend and complimentary meeting registration.

Candidates for the EPIT and EPIGT Awards are also considered for ASIP Merit Awards ($1,250 plus complimentary registration). Prior recipients of the EPIGT and Merit Awards may reapply if the work submitted is clearly distinct from the work previously submitted for their winning application (not just a continuation of the same project). In such cases, the applicants should submit a copy of the previous winning application along with the new application.

Gotlieb Undergraduate Student in Pathobiology Travel Award
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 the ASIP Annual 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.

ASIP Promoting Diversity in Science Trainee Travel Award
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 complete details online at http://www.asip.org/awards/diversity.cfm) to encourage participation in ASIP scientific meetings and conferences. Awardees are selected on the basis of merit by the conference Scientific Review Committee. The current award stipend is $750.

ASIP International Trainee Travel Award
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 http://www.who.int/hinari/eligibility/en/ ) and must submit their abstract to an ASIP topic category.

The ASIP-APSA Partnership Trainee Travel Award
To promote the entry of young physician-scientists into the mainstream of the basic science community and to encourage the participation of young physician-scientists in the ASIP Annual Meeting, ASIP is offering a special ASIP-APSA Partnership Trainee Travel Award of $750 for trainee members of the American Physician-Scientists Association (APSA) to attend the ASIP Annual Meering at Experimental Biology. The ASIP Program Committee will select the recipient based on the submitted scientific abstract to ASIP topic categories. The abstract will be selected for presentation in either poster sessions or in minisymposia.

HCS-Sponsored Trainee Travel Award
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.
