Traveling Scholarships Program
This is an ongoing program and applications are accepted throughout the year. However, for certain events, IAHPC may set deadlines in order to be able to review and complete the process before the event starts. We need enough time to review your application and prepare the required paperwork in case it is awarded. Applications should be received at least 3 months in advance of your expected travel and meeting.
This program offers funding for travel and registration only to conferences, workshops and congresses. This program does not provide funding for tuition of formal degree programs. You need to secure funding from other sources to cover additional expenses.
