Plan now to Submit your Research for Trainee Travel Awards!
To promote the entry 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 provide financial support for 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 programmed 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.
Eligibility and Requirements:
  • Be an ASIP Trainee Member (undergraduate student, pre-doctoral trainee, post-doctoral fellow, senior post-doctoral fellow) in good standing at the time of application submission and through the dates of the conference.
  • Submit an abstract by the established deadline to the ASIP meeting/conference.
  • The award applicant must be the first author of the abstract
  • Register for the ASIP meeting/conference by the established deadline for awardees.
  • Attendance during the conference and at the ASIP Business Meeting and Awards Presentation is mandatory.
