IRC Travel Awards

AHPBA International Relations Committee
Deadline for Submission: Friday, September 29, 2017

The AHPBA and the International Relations Committee are pleased to announce the Travel Awards for the 2018 Annual Meeting.

The goal of the fellowships is to assist trainees and AHPBA members from Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America to attend the AHPBA Annual Meeting in Miami on March 7 – March 11, 2018. AHPBA Candidate and Active members (within the first 5 years of their faculty appointment) are eligible to apply for these awards.

Five fellow grants are available and each award is valued at $2,000. The grant money is to be used to offset the costs of travel and accommodation for the Fellow at the Annual Meeting.

All applications will be assessed by the International Relations Committee and successful applicants will be notified in late October 2017. Monetary awards will be distributed at the Annual meeting. If a successful applicant is unable to attend the meeting for any reason, the AHPBA will award the fellowship to another applicant.

Application Instructions:

To apply for the IRC Traveling Fellowship Grants, please submit the following three documents to ahpba@lp-etc.com by Friday, September 29, 2017.

  • One-page letter outlining your reasons and objective in attending the AHPBA 2018 Annual meeting.
  • A copy of your CV
  • One letter of support from your program director and/or an AHPBA member in your institution or country.

Note: If you have submitted an abstract to the Annual Meeting, the title of this submission should be included in the application letter and this will be taken into consideration. Abstract submission is not a requirement for this award.
