Travel Assistance for Attendees and Presenters

Travel grants are back for 2022! Attendees and Presenters can apply for a travel grant through the abstract submission site directly.

Travel grant criteria:

CSEM has limited funding to help offset Resident travel costs to attend the Residents' Day Review Course and the Professional Conference. Priority is given to residents presenting a poster or oral abstract at the Resident Clinical Vignettes and Research Projects session during the Professional Conference (see above).

CSEM can offer a modest stipend of $100–$500; amounts of individual travel grants are pro-rated based on the distance required to travel to the meeting and depend on the number of applicants. Priority is given to residents with no other sources of funding. Not all applicants will receive a travel grant.

Requirements:

To be eligible, you must:

Note: If you receive a grant, you are required to submit all original travel receipts, boarding passes, and hotel bills to CSEM.

Please note that Diabetes Canada also offers travel assistance for trainees (MDs and PhDs) who will be presenting a scientific poster or oral presentation at the Professional Conference. Further information is available on their website.
