Scholarship Program

The ISOQOL Scholarship Program has been developed to increase the opportunity for members in the early stages of their careers and for members from developing countries to attend and present at the annual conference by providing funds to help defray the expenses associated with travel to the annual conference.

Travel scholarships provide access to the educational content of the annual conference, and also provide members the opportunity to meet with their peers and establish research contacts. Members who meet eligibility requirements can apply for both scholarships.

Developing Country & Student and New Investigator Scholarship

Eligible applicants for the Developing Country Scholarship must be current ISOQOL members, and hold their primary residence in one of the eligible emerging and developing countries. List of Eligible Countries

Eligible applicants for the New Investigator Scholarship must be current ISOQOL members, and either a current student or new investigator (within 5 years of completing terminal degree or medical residency).


Patient Engagement Scholarship

In order to contribute to the advancement of patient engagement in outcomes research, ISOQOL has funding for selected patient partners with relevant experience to attend the ISOQOL 24th Annual Conference. The primary objectives for this participation are to:

  • Collaborate with the Patient Engagement Special Interest Group (SIG) to develop educational programs and tools suitable for patient partners and researchers.
  • Support the development and implementation of activities related to the active engagement of patient partners in research of relevance to the ISOQOL community. 

Patient partners will be selected based upon their experience as active partners in research programs (particularly those of relevance to the ISOQOL community), and their potential to contribute to programs during this conference and in the future.  In this context, we are defining patient partners as patients who have actively contributed to the design, development, delivery and/or evaluation of research projects and not solely as patients who have participated as research participants.


Scholarship Application Deadlines:

Applications must be completed online by Wednesday, 31 May 2017 at 11:59 pm CDT. Applications will be reviewed by the ISOQOL Scholarship Committee.  Decisions will be made in June. Scholarship funds will be provided following the conference.  Advance funds will not be available.
