Are you a member in training, from a less economically developed countries, allied health or non-medical professional with an accepted abstract at ICS 2015? Then apply today for the ICS conference travel award!
The ICS aims to advance bladder and bowel science, promote multi-disciplinary continence care and encourage the development of continence services in less economically developed countries. The ICS conference travel awards are designed to help meet these objectives by assisting members from three key groups who are likely to lack resources to travel and attend the annual meetings.
Applicants need to be ICS members (or agree to join the ICS within one month of receipt of the award) and have a discussed abstract accepted (podium, eposter, video). Non Discussion abstracts and Non Discussion videos are not eligible. Successful applicants are expected to attend for the duration of the conference including the closing ceremony. All successful applicants must disclose the award when presenting their abstract.
