HSG 2016 STDShoulson Scholars

In honor of the Huntington Study Group’s founder, Dr. Ira Shoulson, HSG established the Shoulson Scholar Fund with the goal of growing the next generation of Huntington disease researchers and health care providers.

The fund recognizes outstanding junior investigators with promising futures in Huntington disease research. Awards support recipient travel and attendance of the annual HSG meeting, and cover two nights lodging, travel funding, a travel stipend, and an honorarium.

Applicants must submit a CV or Biosketch, a scientific abstract highlighting their research, a letter of support from a mentor, and a brief application letter (250 words or less), expressing their background and interest in HD and the HSG.

The Shoulson Scholar application is available online.

The scholarships are for individuals interested in furthering their training and education. Applicants must submit a brief application, including letter of support from a mentor, a cover letter outlining interest in HD and becoming an HD investigator and a CV/Biosketch.
