New Tech Professional Development Grant Program

If you are a relatively new clinical laboratory scientist (CLS) or equivalent working in a clinical microbiology laboratory, are directly involved with bench work, have aspirations of doing more and possibly assume a leadership role, you may be eligible for an ASM $1,500 Professional Development Grant. The eligibility criteria are:

  • Worked as a clinical microbiologist for more than 1 and less than 5 years
  • Non-doctoral level professional
  • ASM member
  • Never attended an ASM General Meeting
  • Not presenting a poster or talk at the 2018 meeting

This grant is designed to inspire beginning non-doctoral level clinical microbiologists to get more engaged in our profession by attending the 2018 ASM Microbe meeting. The award will be used for the meeting registration fee and to help defray travel expenses. During the meeting you will interact with a pre-assigned mentor, attend symposia, visit poster sessions, peruse industry-sponsored exhibits featuring the latest technological advances, have the opportunity to network with other new and "seasoned" microbiologists and learn more about the profession of microbiology.
