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
