TSP Educational Foundation Scholarships

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.

When open for submissions, the application also includes the following required items to be uploaded:

  • A letter describing the intended use of the scholarship funds.
  • Confirmation of use of funds (e.g., registration confirmation, letter from externship institution confirming participation, acknowledgment from program that research is being done, etc.)
The Call for Scholarship Applications will be announced in November. (If you don't see the link here to apply, then it has not been released yet!) The deadline for submission is typically mid-January. If you have immediate questions, please contact Laura Weiss, TSP Executive Director at laura.weiss@texmed.org.
