New Investigator Award


The Dysphagia Research Society (DRS) New Investigator Awards will be given to two eligible participants. Applicants may reside in any country and represent any profession. Each participant must have submitted a scientific abstract and been accepted for an oral presentation as part of the DRS Annual Meeting. Once the participants receive notification that their presentations have been accepted, they will be notified by the review committee to submit: a) a two-page, double-spaced summary including data, and b) a CV. Two papers will be selected for oral presentation during the New Investigators’ Forum. These investigators will receive either the first or second place DRS New Investigator Award. First place will receive $1000.00 and second place will receive $500.00.

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

1. The applicant must be presenter and first author on the abstract submission (oral format).

2. The applicant’s submission must be accepted for oral presentation at the upcoming DRS Annual Meeting.

3. If the applicant’s submission is accepted for oral presentation, the applicant must provide the review committee with a two-page (double-space, 1” margin) summary including rationale, methodology, data, implications or conclusions.

4. The candidate must be a current student or within five years of his/her terminal degree.

5. The candidate must supply a CV with his/her abstract to be considered for this award.

6. Candidates may apply more than once if not selected in a previous year and if they continue to meet the criteria.
