The AED Scholarship Fund supports travel fellowships for students and early career investigators to attend the 2016 ICED. Applicants must be AED members, or a membership application must be submitted with the scholarship application. Scholarships of up to $1,500 will be awarded to defray the costs of travel and hotel accommodations and will include a complimentary 2017 ICED registration. This year’s scholarships have been made possible by generous donations of those who contributed to the AED Scholarship Fund.
Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received a travel fellowship.
