Educational Grants

A limited number of ACTRIMS Forum 2018 Educational Grants will be awarded to Young Investigators on a competitive basis whose abstracts are accepted for a platform or poster presentation. Young Investigators include students, residents, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty.

For junior faculty to qualify for a grant, residency or fellowship should have been completed in 2011 or later. If junior faculty don’t meet this requirement and wish to be considered a Young Investigator, such requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the ACTRIMS Forum Program Committee.

Recipients of Educational Grants will be notified in November 2017. Recipients will receive $600 USD and complimentary registration to ACTRIMS Forum 2018.
