Awards & Travel Grants
ASM offers several travel grant opportunities for ID Fellows, Student and Post Doctoral Fellows for ICAAC 2013 in Denver, Colorado.
Infectious Disease Fellows Grant Program
In 2005, ASM expanded opportunities for Infectious Disease Fellows and created the ICAAC ID Fellows Grant Program. This program offers ID Fellows a unique opportunity to attend ICAAC and participate in an experience specifically tailored to their educational development needs. This select group of Fellows will have the opportunity to hear keynote talks targeted to them, participate in mentored poster walks, receive overviews of recommended sessions for attendance, interact with ICAAC Program Committee members, and be given personalized attention including daily discussions to help them maximize their educational and career development experience. Costs covered by this program include: airfare, hotel stay for the meeting dates, ICAAC registration, and daily breakfasts.
Continuing the program for 2013, a subcommittee of the ICAAC Program Committee will select ID Fellows both from U.S. and International Infectious Disease/Clinical Microbiology Fellowship Programs. Recipients will be contacted following their acceptance by ASM staff to assist in making their travel arrangements. All Fellows participating in this program will be housed in the same hotel and will receive an itinerary of events for the week.
ID Fellows who have already participated in the ICAAC Fellows Grant Program are encouraged to apply for the ASM Infectious Disease (ID) Fellow Travel Award.
ASM Infectious Disease (ID) Fellows Travel Grants
The ICAAC Program Committee will award a limited amount of travel grants to support the travel of ID Fellows to ICAAC 2013. Recipients will receive $1000 and be honored as "George McCracken Infectious Disease Fellow."
ASM Student and Post Doctoral Fellows Travel Grant
Travel grants are selected by the Program Committee on the basis of the scientific quality of the submitted abstracts. ICAAC travel grants are $500 for North American residents and $750 for International residents. As these grants are meant only to help defray travel costs for attending ICAAC, students may need to obtain additional funding from other sources.
