Howard Bremer Scholarship Info

The submission process for the 2019 Howard Bremer Scholarship is now open. The Howard Bremer Scholarship supports the travel and registration costs for up to five people to attend the AUTM Annual Meeting.

Launched in 2002, the Howard Bremer Scholarship is an annual 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. Learn more about Howard Bremer’s legacy.
