Awards and Scholarships


In addition to providing networking, publications, continuing education, and high professional standards, ASCLS-IA recognizes members who help make this society work. The Society presents awards each year at annual meetings. Some members are nominated for awards; others may apply to receive awards.

Awards

ASCLS-IA Member of the Year

  • Award given to a member of ASCLS-IA who has shown extraordinary commitment and service to the society.
ASCLS-IA Student Member of the Year

  • Award given to a student member of ASCLS-IA who has shown extraordinary commitment and service to the society.

Mentor of the Year

  • This award serves to recognize that person who has always done a fantastic job of leading and teaching co-workers and others with whom they come in contact… a mentor to the current and future laboratory professionals.

MLS and MLT Student of the Year

  • This award was established to recognize an outstanding Medical Laboratory Scientist and Medical Laboratory Technician student.

Outstanding Support Staff

  • This award serves to honor those lab secretaries, data entry clerks, processing techs, and others who are essential in keeping the lab running.

Phlebotomist of the Year

  • This award serves to recognize the phlebotomists who are both the legs and the public face of the lab.  The quality of our lab testing depends a great deal on their skills.  Plus a patient’s impression of the laboratory and of laboratorians is mostly determined by his or her interaction with the phlebotomist.
