The Benjamin Castleman Award is granted for an outstanding paper in the field of human
pathology published in English. Selections will be based on the merit of the submitted paper,
not on the entire career of the author. Please do not include additional supporting papers.
Any optional information or letters from sponsors should be focused on the paper - not on the
authorís qualifications. The 2013 award will be based on papers published during the calendar
year 2012. The subject may represent any topic in pathology but must be directly relevant to
human disease. On papers with multiple authorship, only one author is eligible, and only one paper per author may be submitted. The Awardee
must be an individual whose year of birth is 1973 or later and who is in, or has completed, a
pathology housestaff training program in a Board Certified Specialty of Pathology. Papers by
pathology trainees are encouraged. The prize will consist of a check for $1,500 and a certificate
(travel will not be paid).
An application form is available on the USCAP Web site. Applicants should complete the form
and submit it together with their manuscript.
