Travel Assistance for Attendees and Presenters

APPLY FOR A TRAVEL GRANT: Travel grants for 2021 are suspended

CSEM has limited funding to help you attend the Residents' Day Review Course and the Professional Conference. We can offer you a modest stipend ($100–500) to help offset your travel costs. 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). 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 will also be 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 save all original travel receipts, boarding passes and hotel bills and submit them to the 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.
