Awards

NIH ORWH Science Policy Scholar Travel Award is a new opportunity for the Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) and OSSD to work together to further turn sex as a biological variable (#SABV) into policy change. This will be awarded to an applicant to support the development of junior investigators focused on women and sex/gender differences, who also has an interest in research policy. Examples include, but are not limited to: (1) studies of the effects of these policies in promoting the research, (2) identification of policy gaps that might promote such research and projection of their effects, or (3) identification of specific research disciplines and/or research topic areas where more work is needed to promote women and sex/gender differences. 

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.
