2017 Share the Future Travel Award and Research Grant Information

 

TRAVEL GRANT APPLICATION CALLS

Share the Future travel grants are intended to help offset travel costs for clinical pathology residents or graduate students who will be giving talks (cases or research) or poster presentations at the Annual Meeting. The 2017 meeting will be November 4-8th in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Six travel grants of $500 each will be awarded.

The application deadline is August 25th, 2017, but earlier submissions are highly encouraged as applicants do not need to wait for abstract or case acceptance before applying!  Funds will only be awarded after an abstract (oral or poster) or case presentation is accepted for the meeting.

Travel grant recipients will be selected from the applicant pool based on criteria including (not necessarily in this order):

  • Stage of training – other factors being equal, preference will be given to applicants further along in their training.
  • Availability of funding from their institution specifically to support travel to the meeting.
  • The distance applicants must travel to attend the meeting – preference will be given to those who are not within an 8-hour drive of the meeting.
  • Preference will be given to applicants giving oral presentations of research or cases. Residents presenting poster presentations are also encouraged to apply.
  • ASVCP membership status 

Share the Future travel grant application forms are available online at the ASVCP website http://www.asvcp.org/stures/index.cfm
