HSG New Member Scholarship Award

The Huntington Study Group (HSG) wishes to encourage individuals wishing to pursue a career in HD research and expand its network of HD professionals. As such, the HSG has developed the New Member Scholarship program to support education and training for interested individuals.

New Member Scholarship Awards for new investigators, trainees, clinicians, geneticists, social workers, physical, speech, and occupational therapists, fellows, and medical students wishing to pursue a career in HD research and/or care to attend the HSG annual meeting: HSG 2015: Building Our Future, October 21-24, 2015 in Tampa, Florida. Scholarship recipients will learn about HD research and care, management and treatment of HD, and interact with the worldwide HSG network of researchers and clinicians.

This New Member Scholarship is open to first-time attendees of the HSG annual meeting. Applicants will be asked to submit a brief application cover letter outlining their interest in HD and becoming an HD professional and a CV/Biosketch. These applications will be reviewed by the HSG Scholarship Committee. The recipients will be expected to go through the approved HSG vendors in order to arrange travel and attendance at the meeting, and are also expected to attend the meeting.
