As part of its commitment to clinical research workforce development, the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) today announces a new scholarship program to support clinical researchers on their pathway toward a master’s degree in clinical research.

ACRP, a non-profit organization leading collaborative initiatives to develop a diverse and research-ready workforce through the ACRP Partners in Workforce Advancement collaborative, is now accepting applications for the newly founded ACRP Clinical Research Leadership Scholarship.

The ACRP Clinical Research Leadership Scholarship was created in honor of Jim Kremidas, ACRP’s executive director from 2014 to 2021.

“ACRP is a passionate advocate for clinical research professionals, starting with providing access and advancement through education for those who are choosing the profession as a career,” says Susan Landis, ACRP Executive Director. “We are excited that this year we can provide support for students seeking a master’s in clinical research and honored to recognize Jim for his contribution to initiating the critical discussion about workforce development.”

The scholarship provides a total of three students enrolled in a clinical research master’s degree program with complimentary attendance at ACRP’s 2023 annual conference in Dallas, Texas, April 28-May 1. These scholarships, estimated at a $2,500 value each, will provide students who are dedicated to advancing their knowledge a unique opportunity to engage with learners and leaders in clinical research by participating in the premier education and networking event for clinical research professionals.

The deadline for application is January 5, 2023. Learn More >
