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 scholarships (i.e. waived or reduced registration fee) will be available to participants with accepted abstracts. Abstract submission deadline: November 3, 2017.

  • If you wish to apply for a waived or reduced registration fee, please send an email to info@isid.org after you have received your abstract acceptance notification. 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 partial scholarships (waived or reduced registration fee only), the Program Committee will give preference to individuals who are from lower-resource countries. Notifications will be emailed by January 15, 2017.
