Financial Aid Application
As part of its mission, IASP provides financial aid to help those with limited resources attend the World Congress on Pain. Applicants from around the world are invited to apply online for funding.
- Applicants must be IASP members.
- Applicants must be trainee members or members in developing/currency restricted countries1. A trainee is defined as a person currently in training, such as a student, intern, resident, fellow, or postdoc. Applicants will be categorized based upon the country in which they are presently working, studying, or living in determining eligibility and award amounts. (Note: if an applicant is both a trainee AND from a developing country, the applicant should complete the developing country application.)
- No one will be fully funded to attend the Congress. Financial aid is limited to free registration and financial support to offset travel expenses.
- Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a poster abstract to the Congress. Please submit your poster abstract prior to completion of your financial aid application.
- The following activities will be used in judging applications for financial aid:
- Enrollment in a full-time degree program or full-time study in the area of pain and/or employment status and location
- Presentation experience at a national or international scientific meeting
- Applicant’s self-selected “best” publication
- Involvement in research, lab experience, or hospital or university teaching
- Priority will be shown to those applicants who have not received a Congress financial aid grant in the past.
- Applicants must complete the entire application.
1Developing countries are countries with economies classified as “low income” “lower-middle income,” and “upper-middle income,” as defined by the World Bank.
