Applications are due December 31, 2020 for any test date in 2021.

Do you know a junior or senior in a baccalaureate program or a graduate student (masters or doctorate) at an accredited university who is pursuing a degree in forensic science, forensic chemistry, a physical or natural science? The ASCLD Scholarship application is open to any eligible student. Information and the application can be found on the ASCLD website http://www.ascld.org/nominations/. Applications are due February 15, 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact office@ascld.org and your questions will be forwarded to Nominations & Awards committee chair, Director Scott O’Neill.

It is not too early to submit an abstract for our 2021 ASCLD Symposium next August. Visit www.ascldsymposium.com to submit your ideas. You may also register for the Winter Leadership Academy here. This Level 1 Leadership Academy will be completely virtual and students may receive a reduced rate for our 2021 ASCLD Symposium registration. Between affordable registration costs and high-quality, experienced instructors, ASCLD is confident that laboratories will see a valuable return on investment in a time when training budgets are lean across the US.

Be well,

Erin
