Gordon Signy Fellows for 2017 Announced

   The Board of Regents and the Board of Trustees of the World Pathology Foundation evaluated eleven (11) applications for Gordon Signy Fellowships to take place in 2017.  This year the application process differed from previous years: applicants had to include letters of reference, a curriculum vitae and disclose other sources of financial support (if any) for their proposed study.  Another important change was giving the Trustees the discretionary authority to provide up to $7,500 stipends for those fellows whose training will exceed 89 days.

   The Trustees are pleased to announce that two Fellowships have been granted for 2017.
