    FUNDING REQUIREMENTS
    • Funds awarded are required to be used towards travel and accommodations to attend the AAMC & AAMC Foundation Annual Conference & Meeting in Montréal, May 5-8, 2018. Awardees will be notified in February of 2018 with grant distributions sent upon acceptance of award.

    • Grant awards may not cover the full expenses of travel, and Conference registration funds are included within the total award amount. Each Travel Grant Fellowship awards the same amount to each awardee, regardless of geographic location, and strength of application. Award amounts vary among Travel Grant Fellowships. In the event that we receive more qualified applications than we are able to award, first preference will be for curators who have never received travel funding from the AAMC.

    • Conference Early Bird registration should be included in your expenses. Registration fees for Saturday and Sunday tours may also be included in your expenses, should you wish to register for them and pending availability of spaces on tours. 

    • In addition to travel and accommodation expenses, an AAMC Foundation Travel Grant may cover per diem expenses up to $50 per day. When planning your budget, keep in mind that on the Monday and Tuesday of the Conference, breakfast and lunch are provided and there are evening receptions on Saturday, Sunday and Monday
    • All fellowship awardees must submit a one-page report to the AAMC Foundation by June 1, 2018 summarizing the benefits of attending the Conference and its relevance in helping to advance your professional development; itemized funding report, including receipts; and a thank you letter acknowledging the importance of the support. This is a firm deadline. 
    • You are required to inform the Foundation of any other funds that you receive for the same purpose. AAMC Foundation Travel Grants are non transferable and must be used as awarded. If you are unable to attend the Conference, you are required to return all funds received within 30 days of cancellation.
