ICE 2018 travel grant application

Please note: This year, the ISE travel grant application is being co-ordinated with the abstract submission process. If you wish to apply for a grant, please select the appropriate box when submitting your abstract. The Abstract Submission Site will be open in November 2017. Please visit the official ICE 2018 website for more information.


About the Grants

ISE award up to up to 100 fellowship support grants to bring young endocrinologists from all over the world to ICE meetings. Preference will be given to early career endocrinologists and/or endocrinologists from developing countries who have demonstrated effectiveness in endocrine research. Endocrinologists must be 35 years of age or under, with first authorship of a submitted abstract to ICE 2018. Submission of an abstract is a pre-requisite for all travel grant applications and abstract scores will be an important criterion in the award process.

Personal grants of up to US$1,500 for trainees outside Africa and up to US$1,000 for those within Africa, will be awarded exclusively to cover expenses such as travel to and from the conference site, conference registration fee, and/or housing costs. Those receiving travel grants will not be exempt from paying the registration fee, but will be invited to an ISE Fellows event at ICE 2018. Reimbursement will be made at the Cape Town meeting in US dollars.

Thank you so much for the award. It was very well organised and I had such a great time there making new friends from other countries, which will help me with my future research.

ICE is a great conference but even more for me – a life changing experience! I didn’t realise how much people have appreciated my research till the conference. As a result, I decided to apply for a PhD with University of Sydney in the hope of taking my research into the next level. I am looking forward to seeing you all again at the next ICE and thank you once again for offering this wonderful opportunity to me, and I am going to remember the momentfort the rest of my life.

ICE/ENDO 2014, Chicago Awardee  

Financial assistance for participants from developing countries is not a luxury but a necessity for many colleagues. When it is merit based, having your efforts recognized is a motivation beyond words.

In Istanbul, I work with Prof. Dilek Gogas as a junior internist in the diabetes outpatient clinics of a major university hospital as well as doing research on diabetic neuropathy. Attending ICE/ENDO 2014 not only fulfilled my ambition to stay up-to-date with recent developments but also taught and encouraged me a lot to form a new research laboratory from scratch. Besides the lectures, the workshops I attended were truly enlightening as well. During the presentation of my study investigating the effectiveness of neurothesiometer in diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy I met many colleagues around the world whose suggestions will inspire new research projects. None of this would be possible without the ISE Travel grant that helped me so much and in the future I hope to be able to pay it forward by contributing through my research.
