Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 24, 2006
SCIREX Corporation announced today their contribution of five scholarships to students attending the American Medical Writing Association’s Southwest Medical Communications Conference in Austin, Texas. Each student scholarship will cover conference registration, enrollment in a workshop, and a small travel stipend. The scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to conference registrants who are enrolled in health sciences, writing, or journalism programs at institutions outside the greater Austin area in the AMWA Southwest region. This Friday at the conference, the recipients will receive their checks as well as certificates.
High quality Medical Writing is integral to the clinical trial process. Clearly written Investigator brochures and protocols facilitate the conduct of the study, and high quality clinical study reports put the study results into context for clinicians, scientists and regulators. Offering financial assistance to students is a great way to support future medical writers.
"SCIREX is pleased to be able to offer support for students attending the AMWA conference in Austin," said Mary Jane Lunsford, Head of SCIREX’s Medical Writing Department. “It is imperative that we invest in the future of these highly valuable assets.”
