The Howard Bremer Scholarship Program

Application Deadline: August 31, 2012

Launched in 2002, the Howard Bremer Scholarship is an annual scholarship program supporting students and professionals new to the field and pursuing a career in technology transfer. Named to honor our esteemed colleague, a pioneering AUTM member and past president of the association (1978-1979), the scholarship is awarded to those who—like Bremer—wish to bring creativity and innovation to the academic technology transfer profession. The scholarship's goal is to foster educational opportunities for individuals who are committed to the vision of technology transfer and are novices in the field.
