The Scientific Committee will reward abstracts of outstanding quality and provide the submitting author with a Travel Grant to attend the SSC 2016 meeting. Two categories of Travel Grants will be available in limited number to the abstract submitters.
The Young Investigator Awards are provided in the form of travel grants to medical trainees and young scientists (under 35 years of age as of May 24, 2016) who submit a highly rated abstract. Travel grants are specifically intended to help with travel to the meeting. In order to be considered for an award, the Young Investigator must be the first author on an abstract submitted to the meeting.
The highest rated abstract in each SSC Subcommittee category will be selected for an oral presentation in that session and will be eligible for an ISTH Travel Grant. Please note that you need to be willing to present this presentation orally.
To be eligible for the award, the recipient must attend the meeting, and members of the ISTH will be given priority.
The ISTH will award travel grants to clinicians and scientists from developing countries (countries classified by the World Bank as low income, lower-middle income, or upper-middle income)
to help subsidize travel to the meeting (a copy of current passport showing country of residence will be required). Those that are the presenter and first author of an abstract submitted to the meeting will be prioritized. To be eligible for the award, the recipient must attend the meeting.
Please select the relevant award on the drop down on the abstract submission form to indicate you wish to apply for this grant.
