As part of our mission, the Southwestern Association of Toxicologists is committed to promoting research in the fields of forensic and clinical toxicology. This is accomplished by encouraging presentations from bench level chemists through meeting grants and student research with the SAT Student Research Grant.

Meeting Grant

Meeting Grants may be awarded to members working in a non-supervisory capacity who are presenting at an SAT meeting. The award amount is $300 in addition to compensation for meeting registration. The grant application, details concerning the award, and requirements are available by following the Meeting Grant Application link below. The S.A.T. Meeting Grant is now known as the James C. Garriott Meeting Grant in memory of Dr. Garriott and his encouragement of bench chemists to be active and contributing members of the scientific community. The grant application has been revised to reflect the name change, as well as the address change for Chris Heartsill, Grant Committee Chair. The recipient will also receive a copy of Dr. Garriot’s “Medicolegal Aspects of Alcohol”.

SAT Student Research Grant

The research grant is awarded to students who are working on a research project through an accredited university or laboratory. Recipients of the award, available up to $1,500.00, must be enrolled in a formal university program in which they are pursuing either an undergraduate or graduate degree in toxicology or related field. Funds are unspecified as to use and can be used for living expenses in conjunction with an internship. The grant application and details concerning the award are available by following the SAT Research Grant Application link below. For further information contact Chris Heartsill.
