Global and Student Registration Awards

ISTSS offers a select number of competitive travel awards annually, including a Global Travel Award and a Student Travel Award. Because this year's meeting is virtual, we are instead offering Global and Student Registration Awards that will cover the cost of registration for the ISTSS 36th Annual Meeting.

Application Deadline: September 4, 2020

ISTSS Global Registration Awards

Each year, some traumatic stress professionals engaged in important and cutting edge research and clinical work in underserved regions of the world are unable to attend the ISTSS Annual Meeting due to financial limitations. A limited number of Global Registration Awards are available to support attendees coming from underserved regions of the world (e.g., low and middle income countries; under resourced communities in higher income countries) and experiencing financial hardship with meeting costs.

ISTSS Global Registration Award recipients are selected because they are in a position to contribute to and influence traumatic stress study and treatment in their own communities. They participate in the Annual Meeting to share their knowledge and professional experiences, learn from their colleagues and network with mentors and peers.  ISTSS encourages applications from individuals who will be able to use the information they learn at the Annual Meeting to make a public mental health impact in their local communities. This impact may, for example, be in the area of psychosocial interventions in underserved areas or developing countries and/or may include a "train the trainer" model.

The Travel Awards Committee will identify an active ISTSS member to serve as a Meeting Facilitator for each Global Registration Award recipient to act as a networking partner during the Annual Meeting. The Facilitator’s role is to assist the Global Registration Award recipient in maximizing their professional knowledge exchange during the annual meeting, and activities may include helping to identify key annual meeting events/presentations to attend, individuals to meet, and ways to become more actively involved with ISTSS.
