"Race Against Resistance" Education Scholarships  

The SHEA "Race Against Resistance" Education Scholarship was established by the SHEA Education and Research Foundation (SHEA ERF) to promote antibiotic stewardship training and education. These scholarships will be awarded to a practitioner in Antibiotic Stewardship interested in learning how to create, lead and research antibiotic stewardship in order to achieve better patient outcomes. SHEA established this scholarship thanks to the dedication of SHEA members who committed to “Race Against Resistance” and fund raise on behalf of the SHEA ERF to raise these funds. Each scholarship recipient will receive a complimentary registration to a SHEA course of their choice on antibiotic stewardship as well as a $500 travel stipend. Applications are due May 1, 2019.
