Scholarship Opportunity – Derek Gray Distinguished Travelling Scholarship Award

Dear Colleagues,

IPITA is once again pleased to offer research fellows the opportunity to apply for the Derek Gray Distinguished Traveling Scholarship Award based upon demonstrated research merit and future potential for both scholarly academic research and a commitment to the training of research scientists in the fields of islet and/or pancreas transplantation.
The $10,000 USD scholarship provides financial support to travel to two or more institutions across the world in order to broaden the laboratory-based research experience of the scholar during his/her formative research training. The recipient will also have the opportunity to learn from established laboratory investigators in the fields of islet and pancreas transplantation biology.

Applicant Eligibility – The Traveling Scholarship will be awarded to a post-doctoral research fellow or trainee with a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD degree who demonstrates scientific merit and future potential for academic research and mentorship of trainees in the fields of islet and/or pancreas transplantation. The applicant will be judged solely on merit. An ideal candidate would be an individual who has not yet reached the level of Assistant Professor or an equivalent junior faculty position, and within 5 years of receiving their advanced degree. The applicant must have a trainee or full IPITA membership. If you wish to apply for the award, please complete the application online. Only online applications will be accepted.
