The award amount is up to $3,900.

    * To be eligible as a Young Investigator, applicants must:

    • Be the first and presenting author of the abstract
    • Be a student/trainee or within five years of completion of a Ph.D., M.D., residency training or equivalent (The five years of eligibility are defined to extend from the end of the calendar year of the date of graduation or, if applicable, of completion of residency training or clinical subspecialty fellowship training, to the submission deadline date. Clinical subspecialty fellowship training is considered to end no later than the point at which the individual becomes board eligible.
