AsMA Fellows Scholarship: One of the stated purposes of the AsMA Foundation is "To provide scholarships for the purpose of underwriting, in whole or in part, the cost of registration fees, transportation, a meal per diem, or any other valid fees or expenses incurred by eligible students or residents in relation to their attendance at one or more scholarly meetings on topics related to aerospace medicine". The AsMA Foundation delegated to the AsMA Fellows Group the task to develop and administer a scholarship program to accomplish the previously stated purpose. Therefore, the AsMA Fellows Scholarship Committee (AsMA-FSC) was formed to establish the "AsMA Fellows Scholarship". The amount of this scholarship is currently set at $2,000 U.S. and is given annually to an AsMA member who is a student in an aerospace medicine residency program, graduate program in aerospace medicine (Masters or Ph.D.), medical certificate or aerospace diploma course, or in a full time education/training program in the allied fields of nursing, physiology, human factors, psychology, ergonomics, engineering, etc. Selection criteria include delivering a slide or poster presentation as a first author at the AsMA Annual Scientific Meeting and then publishing a manuscript as first author in Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine based on the same topic and/or material covered in the slide or poster presentation. The scholarship winner is selected among all the qualified applicants based on the highest scientific value, originality, quality and relevance of his/her AsMA presentation and ASEM manuscript related to the field of aerospace medicine (including allied scientific disciplines) as determined by the AsMA-FSC. Special consideration is given to those applicants who are at an early stage in their career development. The scholarship must be used for the purpose of underwriting, in whole or in part, the cost of registration fees, transportation, hotel accommodations, or any other valid fees or expenses incurred by the winner in relation to his/her attendance at one or more scholarly meetings on topics related to aerospace medicine.  A full description of this scholarship and a copy of the application form can be viewed hereApplication deadline is January 31.
