Scholarships and Awards

Travel Scholarships

Travel scholarships ensure that ISOQOL members can access the educational content of the Annual Conference, the opportunity to meet with their peers, and to establish research contacts. Applicants must be ISOQOL members to be considered for a travel scholarship.

Scholarship applications will open in early 2019.
Check back here soon for updates.

Developing Country & Student and New Investigator Scholarships

The ISOQOL Developing Country & Student and New Investigator Travel Scholarship Program was 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 travel expenses. Members who meet eligibility requirements can apply for both scholarships.

Eligible applicants for the Developing Country Scholarship are current ISOQOL members who hold their primary residence in one of the eligible developing countries: List of Eligible Countries

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

Patient Research Partner (PRP) Scholarship

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

  • Collaborate with the Patient Engagement Special Interest Group (SIG)[c1] [MS2]  to attend and contribute to specific educational sessions at the Annual Conference.
  • Participate in the Industry Special Interest Group (I-SIG) symposium to contribute the patient perspective. This may include serving on a panel discussion group at the conference.
  • Promote participation of PRPs in activities related to the active engagement of patient partners in research of relevance to the ISOQOL community. 

PRPs will be selected based upon their experience as active partners in research programs (particularly those relevant to the ISOQOL community), and their potential to contribute to programs during this conference and in the future. In this context, we are defining PRPs 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 Friday, 24 May at 11:59 pm Central Time. Applications will be reviewed by the ISOQOL Scholarship Committee. Notifications will be sent in June. Scholarship funds will be provided as reimbursement following the conference. Advance funds will not be available. 

Contact with any questions regarding the Scholarship Program.
