The OARSI Scholarship program will begin accepting applications on February 1, 2011, with a closing date of May 1, 2011.
The goal of the $6,000 scholarship is to enable recipients to work in a host institution or company in order to gain an enriched international and national exchange that will foster the acquisition of skills in specialized scientific methodologies, knowledge translation, and dissemination of research. The scholarship will also provide educational, networking and partnership opportunities.
To help you plan ahead, you will need to obtain permission from your current supervisor, identify a host laboratory or company and provide a description of the proposed research project including short and long term goals and expected benefits and outcomes. A list of possible hosts is on the OARSI website but your host does NOT have to come from this list. Click here
The scholarship will be on online process and announcements with more details will be sent as we get closer to February. For questions, please contact Priscilla Rodriguez, OARSI Membership Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
