Resident Grants and Awards

Each year, ASCP recognizes the individuals who have made outstanding, lifelong contributions to the Society. This year, ASCP honors members in several categories for their singular efforts toward the advancement of the organization. ASCP applauds them for their imagination, their tenacity, and their vision.

ASCP also provides unique grant opportunities to qualified residents in pathology. To find out more about ASCP resident grants or how to apply, visit the tabs below.

About the Subspecialty Grants

Subspecialty Grants allow residents to broaden their training experience by exposing them to material not currently available at their institution and by allowing them to work with a prominent pathologist of their selection. Grants can help defray the cost of doing elective rotations at outside institutions.  For specific requirements, see Frequently Asked Questions (Word Doc).
