Any abstract submitter is eligible to apply for an ISSCR Travel award. The Travel awards are meant to help defray the costs of attending the meeting but will not cover all of the costs. Travel awards will be decided based on the quality of the abstract and economic need. To qualify for a travel award you must be an ISSCR member at the time of the meeting. Travel awards will be distributed onsite in the form of a VISA gift card.
Travel award applicants are required to submit an abstract. In the online abstract submission procedure, the applicant will be asked to indicate desire to be considered for a travel award. A justification of economic need (of under 200 words) will be required and the applicant's status [Senior investigator or Junior investigator (Post-doctoral fellow, Graduate student)] must be indicated.
Travel Award FAQs
Do the Travel awards cover the cost of the abstract submission fee?
No, the abstract submission fee must be paid by all abstract submitters and the fee will not be reimbursed or waived for those accepting travel awards.
When will I be notified about the Travel awards?

What are my chances of receiving a Travel award?
Due to the large number of applications for travel awards, the ISSCR is not able to fund most requests. We suggest you explore alternative sources for travel funds early in your planning process.To better your chance of securing an award, be sure your abstract is well-written and includes meaningful results. If English is not your primary language, have your abstract read by an English speaker.
