Trainee Research Award

Two ASPN Trainee Research Awards are presented at the annual meeting of ASPN at PAS. Medical students, residents, and pediatric nephrology fellows at the time of submission are eligible. One award recognizes the best abstract on patient-oriented research and one the best basic science abstract. The awards consist of cash awards, partially paid travel expenses, and complimentary meeting registrations. Candidates for the Trainee Research Award are solicited during the Call for Abstracts.

Abstract Submission Deadline is January 4, 2023.

Resident Travel Grant Award

ASPN sponsors residents and selected other non-fellow trainees to attend the annual ASPN/PAS meeting.

Stipends to partially support travel ($400) and complimentary registration are given on a competitive basis. Applicants must be medical students, pediatric residents, chief residents, or med-peds residents currently enrolled in an ACGME-accredited pediatric residency program. Priority is given to those trainees earlier in their education (i.e., PL-1 and PL-2). This grant is restricted to a one-time acceptance.

The request to be considered must include the following:

• Recommendation by an Active member of the ASPN who agrees to accompany the trainee to the meeting.

• Applicant’s curriculum vitae.

• One page statement from the candidate describing his/her interest and possible career plans in pediatric nephrology.

It is important that all of the documents accompany your request.

Applicants must commit to attend the entire meeting if selected.

Nominations must be submitted by Tuesday, January 31, 2023.
