A limited number of scholarships (expense reimbursements) may be available to assist with attendance at the 10th ISPE Asian Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology. Scholarships may be awarded to contribute towards expenses associated with registration, lodging, and travel to the conference. Applicants are advised that typically the total amount of financial (scholarship) assistance requested to attend ISPE meetings significantly exceeds the amount of funds the Society is able to allocate. Applicants are strongly encouraged to try to simultaneously find additional funding to attend this meeting from other sources.

Researchers from developing countries, those in genuine financial need, and students who otherwise would be unable to attend ACPE 2017 are invited to submit an application form.

ISPE’s ACPE International Steering Committee, which administers this Scholarship program, bases its decisions on factors including but not limited to: having an accepted abstract, country of residence, student status, financial situation, stated reasons for wishing to attend meeting, and supporting statements.

ACPE 2017 will reimburse recipients in Australian dollars for approved expenses on receipt of appropriate documentation after or if appropriate, during ACPE 2017.

The deadline for scholarship application submission is Friday 16 June 2017.
