In an effort to increase links to patient advocates and advocacy organizations around the world, IASLC will offer travel awards to a limited number of patient advocates to attend and participate in the IASLC World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC). The number of travel awards shall be limited to a maximum of five. Fewer than the maximum amount may be awarded, depending on the interest, qualification of the applicants, and the review process. Applicants for the Advocacy Travel Award will be required to submit a detailed application, a summary of expected outcomes for attending, and any other supporting documentation required for review by IASLC. The award is open to non-profit organizations worldwide, and to individual patient advocates not affiliated with an advocacy organization. Preference will be given to those who have not won a WCLC patient advocacy travel award in prior years.
NOTE: Please review all ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA before completing the form below. You must be an active IASLC member, and you must include the name and email of another IASLC member who endorses your application. Cancer Patients & Survivors can join IASLC as non-voting members for no charge (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details). Advocates may join as full voting IASLC Members for US$50.00. Active members can login to the IASLC Member Directory to find member contact details, or you may contact the IASLC Regent from your region.
Awardees will receive:
Complimentary Conference registration
A fixed monetary amount (to be determined based on your region) to help offset travel costs
Up to four nights’ accommodation at one of the Conference contracted hotels
Free IASLC Membership for 2017
Please note that if your travel costs exceed the fixed monetary amount, the Conference will unfortunately not be able to provide further financial support. Any costs exceeding the fixed monetary amount will be at your own expense.
