Financial Assistance

The International Society for Infectious Diseases is committed to training and education. Accordingly, the Society has created a special financial assistance fund. Limited financial assistance is available to individual participants who have had an abstract accepted for the Congress and are financially responsible for the cost of attending the Congress. In order to assist as many people as possible, sponsored delegates are not eligible for financial assistance.

  • ICID Scholarships: A limited number of scholarshis (i.e. waived or reduced registration fee) will be available to participants with accepted abstracts. Abstract submission deadline: February 12, 2012 (extended to February 24, 2012). If you wish to apply for a waived or reduced registration fee, please check the appropriate box when submitting your abstract online. Scholarships may provide for a waiver or reduction in the registration fee. Travel and accomodation costs cannot be covered by the Society due to a very restricted congress budget. In allocating scholarships, the Program Committee will give preference to individuals who are from lower-resource countries. Notifications will be emailed by March 31, 2012.
