The Texas Society of Pathologists Educational Foundation was established to encourage education and research in the field of pathology.  The foundation 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. The application (link below) is for all 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.

The application includes the following required items:

  • 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 is NOW OPEN - and the deadline to submit has been extended to Wednesday, January 13 at 8am. Click here to go to the application form. If you have questions, please contact Laura Weiss, TSP Executive Director at
