Travel Grants

A limited number of travel grants are available, intended to cover one attendee’s registration fee, hotel, and travel costs. Each grant is $1,000. If you are interested in applying for a grant, please email a letter of recommendation from your program director as well as a personal letter indicating need to by May 1, 2018. Only one grant will be awarded per institution. Recipients will be given the grant after completion of the course so you must cover upfront costs.
