The Stowell-Orbison Awards are for trainees who are currently residents or fellows in pathology. The USCAP offers up to four awards of $500, to pathologists-in-training who present the best research work through the medium of a poster presentation. In addition to these cash awards, a limited number of certificates of merit may also be presented.
Applicants can submit only one paper per author, and the first author must be a pathologist-in-training who had a major role in the study. Posters for this competition will be judged by members of the USCAP Stowell-Orbison Awards Committee based on originality, impact, design, presentation, and trainee input.
The Association of Directors of Anatomic and Surgical Pathology (ADASP) and the USCAP co-sponsor two additional awards of $500 each to pathologists-in-training for the best posters on a morphology-based surgical pathology study and on autopsy material, respectively, presented as part of the Stowell- Orbison competition. Applicants may win either of these awards alone, or they may win them in addition to a Stowell-Orbison Award. Eligibility is the same as for the Stowell-Orbison abstracts. Applicants can submit only one paper per author, and the first author must be a pathologist-in-training. Posters for this competition will be judged by a panel of members of the ADASP.
