Awards & Grants
Every year, the Society presents awards at the annual meetings of the Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA) and the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) for the best technology-related abstracts.
Grant recipients will be selected by a committee of STA members, based on written applications for submitted research proposals. The recipient of the STA Fresenius Grant, and/or the institution sponsoring the research, is responsible for all decisions regarding the identification of research needs, determination of objectives, selection and presentation of content, selection of all persons and organizations that will be in a position to control the research, selection of research methods, and the evaluation of the activity.
Every year, the Society bestows the J. S. Gravenstein Award for lifetime achievement in the area of technology in anesthesia. STA members are encouraged to nominate worthy candidates online.
