International Trainee Scholarships



Deadline: Friday, March 22, 2019

The International Lung Health and Membership Committees of the American Thoracic Society (ATS) are pleased to announce the availability of the ATS International Trainee Scholarships (ITS), to provide scholarship support for international trainees to attend the ATS International Conference in Dallas, Texas May 17-22, 2019.

The purpose of the International Trainee Scholarships is to help develop interest and continued active membership and participation within the ATS. During the 2019 International Conference, trainees will be exposed to state-of-the-art clinical research and practice of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine. In addition to these educational opportunities, trainees will be able to participate in all activities the ATS International Conference has to offer.

Each ITS award includes a certificate of achievement, a cash scholarship determined by the awardees' country of origin and level of training, and a one-year free ATS In-Training Membership commencing on 1 July 2019, as well as an invitation to attend the International Scholars Poster Colloquium and Discussion during the conference. Each scholarship is intended to support expenses related to attending the ATS International Conference including registration, accommodations and related daily costs such as meals and local transportation.

Criteria for the International Trainee Scholarship Award:

An eligible applicant for the ITS will be an author/co-author on an abstract(s) accepted for presentation at the ATS 2019 International Conference, and who meet the additional listed requirements at the link below. The scholarships will also be based upon merit, including the quality of science in the accepted abstract, the contribution of the trainee to the work in the accepted abstract, and likelihood of future contributions to the field. These scholarships are made possible through support from the American Thoracic Society.
