ASC Foundation State and Regional Organization Grant

The cytology workforce, including cytotechnologists and cytopathologists, has continuing education requirements established by local institutions and national certifying agencies.  Fulfilling these requirements has become increasingly difficult for several reasons; among them, decreased institutional support and loss of many of our cytotechnology training programs, which historically have been the support system for local organizations and continuing education initiatives.

$1000 Grant(s) are available to State and Regional Organizations (SROs), Cytotechnology programs or laboratories  to be used for  developing and hosting local continuing education events. This is a mechanism for the ASC Foundation to directly promote accessible local continuing education for cytology practitioners through SROs.

Regional organizations will submit proposals.   Up to four (4) grants will be awarded annually in increments of $1000.  Funds would be used primarily to support speaker travel, honoraria, meeting promotional material.

Strengthening local organizations with high quality, accessible meetings will help to sustain SROs as well as the ASC and future workforce.

The deadline to submit an application is August 15th.   Visit the ASC Foundation Web site  for more information.
