Scholarships and awards

Here are a few scholarships and awards we offer to the science community.

The Sam Drogo Technology in the Classroom Award

+

In September 2010, the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) lost a great friend. Sam was a long-time, devoted HAPS member, an active participant in the development of the HAPS Comprehensive Competency Test, and a consistent proponent of the use of technology in the classroom and laboratory. In Sam’s honor, ADInstruments established the Sam Drogo Technology in the Classroom Award, an annual award for a HAPS member who demonstrates the innovative use of technology to engage undergraduates in Human Anatomy and Physiology.

The Outstanding Trainee awardee will receive a $1,000 cash prize plus reimbursement of the registration fee for Experimental Biology.

The candidate must upload an NIH-style biosketch and a first-author abstract that they will present at Experimental Biology to the APS website. The biosketch should include a listing of the applicant’s publications (may include abstracts) and a brief narrative describing the applicants training plan and how this plan will enable the applicant to address important unanswered questions in cardiovascular physiology in health and disease.

Candidates will be judged on their abstract, their potential for development into an independent investigator, and how their ongoing and proposed future areas of investigation relate to the Cardiovascular Section. Service to the APS and CV Section will also be considered during the application evaluation process.
