IAHPC is proud to announce that we will provide five scholarships of US$1,500 each to help individuals from developing countries cover their cost of travel and stay for the next congress of the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) in Vienna, Austria, 21-25 June 2009. IPOS will waive the congress registration fees of those selected by IAHPC for the scholarships.

Applicants must:

  • be living in a developing country,
  • be active members of both IPOS, or any of its affiliates, and IAHPC and
  • be actively working in palliative care.

Applications from physicians, nurses, psychologists and other disciplines are welcome.

Preference will be given to individuals who have not received an IAHPC grant in the past three years and individuals with accepted poster or oral presentations in the Congress.

Applications are available through the IAHPC website at http://www.hospicecare.com/Travellscholars/ .

When applicable, please send proof of acceptance of a poster or an oral presentation, along with a copy of your current CV.
