Grants and Scholarships Home
In 1994 the HAPS Executive Committee initiated a program of modest grants, scholarships, and awards for anatomy and/or physiology faculty and their students. These awards support the mission statement of the Society, which is to promote excellence in the teaching of human anatomy and physiology. Grants, scholarships, and awards are administered through the HAPS Foundation Oversight Committee. Applications for all grants, scholarships, and awards must be submitted online. Links to online applications are found on each grant-specific page along with deadlines, eligibility, and additional information.
