Every year, AAA bestows more than $350,000 in awards, research grants, and scholarships to members. Recipients include those new to the profession, those who have dedicated their careers to the anatomical sciences, and everyone in between. In fact, 84 percent of members who have been in the field for seven years or less look to AAA for award opportunities specific to biomedical researchers early in their training. Other prestigious awards recognize those who have demonstrated exemplary service and have made long-term contributions — ensuring that members are recognized throughout every phase of their careers.
