ISPRM Grants Announcement

The purpose of the International Education Development Fund is defined on article II of its operational guidelines (http://www.isprm.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/ISPRM-Committee-operational-guidelines-IEDF-Committee-2018_-JM.pdf)
During the ISPRM meetings in Paris, 2018, a proposal of the IEDF trustees was approved by the Executive Committee and the President’s Cabinet to spend the entire fund during the next few years. It was also suggested that a significant amount could be to help the participation of more colleagues in the ISPRM World Congress and the IEDF decided to offer two grants:

  1. A “General grant”, for colleagues from developing countries (Low and Lower middle-income countries)
  2. A “Special grant”, for young colleagues for those founding/launching the Young PRM physicians, residents and medical students Task Force.

These grants were announced on the ISPRM website – http://www.isprm.org/news/grants-to-attend-isprm-2019-in-kobe-japan/#.XMNEkWhKhPY  – and through a mail shot for the ISPRM National Societies and Individual members.

It is our pleasure to announce the grantees:
