OSSD 2017 Awards

The Elizabeth Young New Investigator Award is awarded to an abstract presenter whose research is of high quality and deemed worthy of an oral presentation.  These winners will present their abstract as an oral presentation in a special symposium at the annual meeting.  Please Note: individuals that are not selected for the Elizabeth Young New Investigator Award (oral presentation) will automatically be considered for a poster presentation.  If you would like to be considered for the Elizabeth Young New Investigator Award and an oral presentation, please select this option at the time of abstract submission, on the abstract submission form. Elizabeth Young Investigators will be awarded $1,000 each.  Awardees will be notified by April 1st of their award.

Travel Awards for OSSD 2017.  A limited number of travel awards will be awarded to trainee members presenting their high-quality posters at the OSSD 2017 meeting in Montréal.  In order to be considered for a travel award, your abstract must be submitted by March 15th, 2017.  Please select that you would like to be considered for the travel award at the time of abstract submission, on the abstract submission form.  Awardees will be notified by April 1st of their award.  Exact award amounts and numbers will be dependent on funding.

Florence P. Haseltine Best Poster Award.  The prestigious Florence P. Haseltine Award is given to the best poster presentation by a new investigator (see here for additional details).  Abstracts submitted after March 15th may still be considered for the Florence P. Haseltine Best Poster Award, but cannot be considered for a travel award (see above).  If the presenting author would like to be considered for the Florence P.
