Up to three awards are given each year. The winners will be informed by e-mail and will receive a cash award of $500, $200, and $100 for the 1st, 2nd, and 3d place winner respectively and also a certificate and permanent recognition at IACP website.

Pathology trainees (a resident, fellow, or student) or young pathologists within 5 years of finishing training from Taiwan who have first-authored research abstracts accepted for presentation at the USCAP Annual Meeting are eligible.
BEST ABSTRACT AWARD COMMITTEE: The IACP Abstract Award Committee consists of a panel of reviewers from all sponsoring societies.
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for award consideration, you must be a first-author of a USCAP-accepted abstract (for either poster presentation or plenary talk), a resident, fellow, or student of Chinese ethnic origin.
