At our last meeting AAPA membership in attendance has approved a creation of two new awards. We are very excited to announce the Postdoc travel award and the Extension/outreach award. We are also continuing the tradition of supporting our students with the AAPA scholarship and the presentation awards.

The deadline for ALL awards is November 1, 2017 except for the student presentation awards which are given out at the annual meeting. Please see the attached guidelines and let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to share these announcements with others, but also please note that the applicants must be AAPA members at the time of application. We will do our best to announce the winners of the Postdoc award and the Extension/outreach award by mid-December.

Check out the Awards page for more information and application instructions!
