Thanks to newly granted funding from CIHR (the Canadian Institutes for Health Research), we are pleased to announce travel awards for trainees at Canadian universities from historically underrepresented backgrounds. These awards are intended to enable more trainees to attend ICEM 2022 by helping to offset a significant portion of their expenses, including registration, travel, and/or accommodations. Applications will be evaluated with recommended practices to promote Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in mind, consistent with Tri-Agency guidelines. The maximum awarded amount per recipient will be approximately $1,000 CAD. We anticipate at least ten (10) travel awards will be approved.
Eligibility: Trainees (undergraduates, graduate students, or postdocs) currently enrolled at a Canadian university, who are from backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in science, are eligible. These include women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous/First Peoples, racialized minorities, and individuals from the LGBTQ2+ community. Trainees who meet these criteria and have already registered, but do not hold an EMGS travel scholarship for this meeting, are eligible and can resubmit their abstract along with other requested components of the application (see Instructions to Apply). EMGS membership is not required.
