ISTSS Global Travel Award Funding Campaign
Each year, some traumatic stress professionals engaged in important, cutting-edge research and clinical work in underserved regions of the world are unable to attend the ISTSS Annual Meeting due to financial limitations. A limited number of Global Travel Awards are available from ISTSS each year to support Annual Meeting attendees coming from underserved regions of the world (e.g., low- and middle-income countries, under-resourced communities in higher-income countries) who experience financial hardship with fees or travel costs. The travel awards are supported by voluntary contributions from ISTSS members and vary each year in terms of availability.
Two ISTSS Past Presidents, who wish to remain anonymous, have pledged to match between them up to $20,000 in ISTSS Global Travel Fund donations received by the end of 2019. This will help ensure that funds are available to help researchers and clinicians from underserved regions attend the ISTSS Annual Meeting.
We are appealing to all ISTSS members and supporters to donate to the ISTSS Global Travel Award Fund to help us reach our $20,000 goal by the end of 2019. The ISTSS Executive Committee and the ISTSS Board of Directors have already made their pledges to get the campaign started.
Please donate to the Global Travel Award Fund to help us bring researchers and clinicians to the Annual Meeting who otherwise could not attend.
Make a difference today and support ISTSS’ mission as a leading global organization promoting the advancement and exchange of knowledge about traumatic stress. Make a donation to the ISTSS Global Travel Award Endowment Fund.
