BioTAP Scholars Cohort Page

Congratulations to the first group of BioTAP Scholars!!

We are thrilled to announce the first cohort of BioTAP Scholars. This group of 16 individuals are collaborating together over the 2017-2018 year, including meeting face-to-face prior to the ABLE conference in Madison, WI. They are enacting research projects to collect and analyze data about GTA teaching professional development at their institutions. We were truly honored to receive so many outstanding applications for the BioTAP Scholars program, and we are excited to see that interest in this program extends across the US and into Canada! We will be selecting five additional cohorts over the next four years, so please keep your eyes open for future rounds of applications.
