Financial Aid Applications
As part of its mission to support the study of pain, NeuPSIG provides financial aid to help those with limited resources attend the Congress. Applicants from around the world are invited to apply for funding online.
Applicants must be IASP NeuPSIG members to be considered for a financial aid award. Applicants who are not NeuPSIG members will automatically be disqualified.
Applications will be accepted from persons in developing countries, those from countries with currency exchange restrictions, and NeuPSIG trainee members in developed countries. (Note: A trainee is defined as a person currently in training, such as a student, intern, resident, fellow or post-doc. Applicants will be categorized based upon the country in which they are presently working, studying, or living in determining eligibility and award amounts.)
No one will be fully funded to attend the 7th International Congress on Neuropathic Pain (NeuPSIG 2019). Financial aid will take the form of free registration and financial support for hotel accommodations. If you are awarded financial aid, you will automatically receive free registration to the Congress, so the funds awarded are above and beyond this expense.
Applicants will need to provide the following information:
IASP NeuPSIG membership number. You must be a IASP NeuPSIG member to receive financial aid. Only applications from NeuPSIG members will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee. NeuPSIG membership must be active.
Best publication in the field of neuropathic pain. You will need to list all relevant information including all authors' names in the order they appear in the publication, title of publication, journal name or book title and publisher, journal volume, page numbers, and year). Only one publication will be accepted.
