TSP Educational Foundation Scholarships - APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED!

The Texas Society of Pathologists Educational Foundation (TSPEF) was established to encourage education and research in the field of pathology. Annual contributions to the TSPEF help support the growth and continuity of the Scholarship Program.

The TSPEF is currently offering up to five (5) scholarships of up to $500 each. Additionally, the V.O. Speights Scholarship in Pathology awards up to $1000 for one outstanding application meriting additional funding.

Pathology residents, fellows or medical students interested in pathology as a career may apply. Only one application needs to be submitted in order to be considered for all TSPEF annual scholarships.

Past scholarships have been awarded to fund a variety of endeavors including investigational research, externship travel, materials (e.g. books, software) to obtain special training, and travel to a meeting (presentation or other active involvement at a meeting is prioritized over simply attending). Other uses (e.g. pathology-associated community service or education projects) are also encouraged. Please note that scholarships are NOT approved to cover past projects that have been or will be completed at the time that funds are awarded.  Scholarships are typically awarded each January, with recognition during the TSP's annual meeting.  (*The 101st Annual Meeting is being held April 1-3, 2022 at the JW Marriott Houston by the Galleria. Scholarship recipients will be recognized during the TSP Business Meeting on Saturday, April 2.)

The TSPEF Scholarship Application (which is a very simple Survey Monkey online form) includes the following items to be uploaded:

  • A letter describing the intended use of the scholarship funds. This item is REQUIRED.
  • Confirmation of use of funds, if applicable (e.g., registration confirmation, letter from externship institution confirming participation, acknowledgment from program that research is being done, etc.)

The call for the TSPEF 2022 Scholarship Applications is NOW OPEN! Only completed submissions will be considered. Deadline to apply is MONDAY, MARCH 28, 2022 AT 5PM. CLICK HERE TO BE REDIRECTED TO THE SURVEY MONKEY SUBMISSION FORM.
