The Lasker Foundation proudly launches its 2023 Essay Contest, accepting submissions now through March 31, 2023. This is a career- and resume-building opportunity open to medical students, interns, residents, doctoral and postdoctoral fellows in the biomedical sciences and grad students training in health professions.
Now in its 10th year, this Essay Contest is sponsored by the prestigious Lasker Foundation, home of the US top biomedical research prize for 75+ years. Each year, the contest attracts several hundred talented, early-career medical students, researchers and trainees —invites them to hone their science communications skills — and awards several winners up to $5,000 for educational expenses.
This year’s essay contest theme: Ethical issues are not always easy to identify. Describe an unanticipated ethical issue you have encountered, or you have seen colleagues encounter, during your training and the strategies used to address it.
The 800-word essays are due March 31, at 2 p.m. EDT.
