ACR Announces 2009 Fellows-in-Training Travel Scholarship
The ACR’s Fellows-in-Training (FIT) Travel Scholarship is sponsored by the ACR Fellows Education Fund and allows 400 fellows-in-training to participate. The scholarship provides first- or second-year adult or first-, second-, or third-year pediatric fellows in a training program approved by U.S. and Canadian governing bodies with complimentary registration to a preconference and the scientific sessions at the 2009 ACR/ARHP Annual Scientific Meeting.
While at the meeting, recipients will benefit from the opportunity to learn from other fellows as well as more senior members of the rheumatology community. In addition, each fellow will be eligible to register for one complimentary Meet the Professor or workshop session and will gain access to the trainee lounge during the meeting.
Aside from meeting registration, fellows-in-training will be provided support for five nights’ accommodations, airfare, and ground transportation and will receive an invitation to attend, with their program director, a fellows’ reception and dinner. Eligible fellows-in-training can apply from July 6 through July 20, 2009. For more information about, visit www.rheumatology.org/fellows or send questions to [email protected]
