IAHPC believes that palliative care workers, in addition to being health care providers, may also be effective agents of change in their own countries and settings.
The goal of the traveling scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to palliative care professionals to attend events that will enable them to improve palliative care in their settings. These should ultimately lead to better and adequate policies and/or institutional norms, increased access to palliative care as well as access to essential medicines for pain relief and palliative care.
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, congresses and events. This program does not provide funding for tuition of formal degree programs. You need to secure funding from other sources to cover additional expenses.
