Scholarship Opportunities

The Society for Clinical Trials offers two exciting scholarship program opportunities for the Annual Meeting in Liverpool, United Kingdom. These competitions and prestigious awards are given in honor of two contributors of great significance to the discipline of clinical trials and to the SCT:

The SCT Thomas C. Chalmers Student Scholarship
This is open to students enrolled in a degree program of an accredited college or university, or and those in a post-doctoral fellow program. Entrants submit abstracts and brief full articles (text, graphics, tables, and references;  See website for additional requirements) for review by the SCT Scholarship Committee. Appropriate topics broadly encompass clinical trials and include study design and data analysis methods; medical, ethical or legal issues; data entry, management, and computing as it relates to clinical trials; scholarly review of results or methods of a class of trials; or scholarship in the history of clinical trials. Papers illustrating applications in important clinical research areas are particularly encouraged.

Three entrants will be designated Thomas C. Chalmers Student Scholarship Finalists and selected to present at the Annual Meeting, with registration fee paid and hotel and travel support (up to $1700) provided. Finalists will be contacted in early December to make arrangements for travel and accommodations at the meeting. If your submission is not chosen for this award, it will be considered by the Program Committee for an oral or poster presentation. Finalists will present their papers in a dedicated session at the Meeting in Liverpool, and from among these, the Thomas C. Chalmers Student Scholarship Award and a $500 cash prize will be awarded to the best presentation and paper as determined by Scholarship Committee members.

The SCT Sylvan Green Award
This is open to physicians and dentists involved in clinical trials or epidemiology projects with bearing on clinical trials research. Entrants submit an abstract (standard 300-word limit using the online abstract submission form; Select Green Award option and confirm that you are a practicing physician or dentist). All clinical trial-related issues are appropriate including study design and data analysis methods; meta-analysis; medical, ethical or legal issues; data entry, management, and computing as it relates to clinical trials; scholarly review of the results or methods of a class of trials; or scholarship in the history of clinical trials. Papers illustrating applications to important clinical questions are particularly encouraged.

One winner will be selected to present at the Annual Meeting in Liverpool, with registration fee paid and hotel and travel support (up to $1700) provided. The winner will be contacted in early December to make arrangements for travel and accommodation. If your submission is not chosen for this award, it will still be considered by the Program Committee for an oral or poster presentation.
