Postponing the New York Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Scholarship

Dear Applicants for the New York Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Scholarship 2020:
Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, we have decided that we must postpone the selection process for the 2020 New York Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Scholarship. Many of those involved in the selection process must devote their efforts and focus to fighting the spread of the virus at this challenging time. 
The deadline for the applications will be extended to August 1, 2020 and we will announce the recipient in mid September. We hope to have the presentation ceremony during the 7th JAMSNET World Conference & Symposium in NYC on October 2 and October 3, 2020. Although we have a new deadline, we are accepting applications at this time.
We greatly appreciate your understanding of the change in the time frame at this very difficult time. 
Maki Kano-Lueckerath, MDKimihiko Oishi, MDCo-Chairs,New York Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Scholarship Selection Committee
