NEW THIS YEAR - ALL APPLICANTS MUST APPLY FOR AN ASIP TRAINEE TRAVEL AWARD!
Once you apply for this award you may apply for other awards depending on your membership category and eligibility.

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 the Annual Meeting, the American Society for Investigative Pathology is offering a limited number of Trainee Travel Awards of $750 each to offset travel expenses for ASIP Trainee members to attend the Experimental Biology Meeting. The ASIP Program Committee will select the recipients based on the scientific abstracts submitted to ASIP topic categories. In addition to general ASIP trainee travel awards there will be an opportunity to apply for trainee travel awards for excellence in liver research, neoplasia and cardiovascular research, but all applicants must first apply for the (general) ASIP trainee travel award. Abstracts will be selected for presentation in either poster sessions or in minisymposia.

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 research and clinical fellows) and who has excelled in investigative efforts in studying mechanisms of disease, as evidenced by an abstract submission to an ASIP topic category at the ASIP annual meeting, an extended research report, 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 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 an ASIP topic category at the ASIP annual meeting, an extended research report, 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 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 stipend plus complimentary registration), which will be awarded to the best postdoctoral fellow/resident abstract and the best graduate/medical student abstract. Each applicant must be a trainee member of ASIP. Prior recipients of the EPIT, 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 Family Fund for Undergraduate Education in Pathobiology Undergraduate Student Trainee Travel Award
The newly established Gotlieb Family Fund for Undergraduate Education in Pathobiology will support an undergraduate student with a $750 travel award to attend the ASIP 2016 Annual Meeting. Like the other ASIP trainee Travel Awards, an abstract must be submitted to an ASIP topic category at the annual meeting. Applicants must be Undergraduate Student Members of ASIP.

Under-Represented Groups (URG) Trainee Travel Awards
The FASEB MARC grant that funds Under-represented Group (URG) Trainee Travel Awards expires this year. We are reasonably confident that the funding will be extended, but at this time there is no guarantee. You will have an opportunity to identify yourself as a member of an Under-represented Group during the Trainee Travel Award application process. You must be a member of an NIH-recognized under-represented group to be eligible. If funding for URG becomes available, you will be considered. To expedite the processing of the URG Trainee Travel Award by FASEB, you must submit an extended abstract with your application. 

ASIP International Trainee Travel Award
ASIP members who are citizens of Group A Hinari countries will also be considered for the newly established ASIP International Trainee Travel Award, which is supported by the A. D. Sobel - ASIP Education Fund. Please identify yourself as a citizen of a Group A Hinari country during the ASIP Trainee Travel Award application process and you will automatically be considered.

The American Society for Investigative Pathology-American Physician Scientists Association Partnership Trainee Travel Award to attend the ASIP Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology
To promote the entry of young physician-scientists into the mainstream of the basic science community and to encourage the participation of young investigative pathologists in the ASIP Annual Meeting, ASIP is offering a special ASIP-APSA Partnership Trainee Travel Award of $750 for trainee members of APSA to attend the Experimental Biology Meeting. The ASIP Program Committee will select the recipient based on the submitted scientific abstract to an ASIP topic category. 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 Annual Meeting, 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, which must include data based on the use of histochemical techniques. Abstracts will be selected for presentation in either poster sessions or in minisymposia. These abstracts must be submitted to ASIP topic categories.
