Travel Scholarship Program

Travel scholarship donations help ISOQOL give more scholarships to Annual Conference attendees who are students, new investigators, patients or from developing countries. These scholarships include Annual Conference registration, one-year membership and support to offset travel costs.


Help ISOQOL #MovethePlane Again in 2022

Although the conference was virtual for 2021, the scholarship contributions from past years were awarded to student, new investigator, developing country and patient applicants to offset the cost of registration. Thank you to our past donors for their generosity!

Help ISOQOL continue building the Travel Scholarship Program by donating to this year’s #MovethePlane fundraiser! If you are able to and would like to support the Travel Scholarship Program, ISOQOL and future scholarship recipients would greatly appreciate it. The past few years have been challenging for all, and ISOQOL does not expect those who were heavily affected by COVID-19 to donate.
