On behalf of the IADVL EC 2016, it is my pleasure to invite applications from IADVL members (PLMs and LMs) for the following scholarships for the 2017 AAD Annual Meeting to be held in March 3-7 in Orlando, Florida:
A. Registration Reciprocal Scholarships (Two)
Scholarship recipients are nominated by their national dermatologic society and receive a stipend, complimentary registration for the AAD meeting, one ticketed session, and an invitation to a dinner with AAD leadership.
B. Strauss and Katz World Congress Fund Scholarship (Two)
The scholarship, formerly known as the Poster Exhibit Scholarship, includes a stipend, complimentary registration for the meeting, admission to one post-graduate ticketed session, and an invitation to attend the International Scholarship Recipient Reception and Dinner.
Please read below criteria common to both scholarships:
- You have to be a bonafide member (PLM/LM) of IADVL and need to quote that.
- You should either be a PG trainee or must have completed your PG training within last 3 years.
- You need to state clearly whether you have received AAD or any other scholarship ENDORSED by IADVL before. If you have, IADVL would not endorse for a second time. Information should be clear.
