Travel Awards

The ISTSS Awards Committee is delighted to announce the opening of nominations for the 2023 ISTSS Awards. ISTSS offers a range of awards to recognize the contribution of researchers, clinicians, and advocates to the field of traumatic stress. The Society will recognize award winners at the ISTSS 39th Annual Meeting, November 1 to 4, 2023, in Los Angeles, California, United States.

An individual can be nominated for multiple awards. When considering whom to nominate for these awards, ISTSS encourages submissions from applicants from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds and from countries outside of North America, as well as within. Elected board members are not eligible to be nominated for awards. 

Given the number of submissions for these awards, the Committee is unable to consider additional materials. Submissions that exceed the character or page limits, or submissions after the nomination date, will not be considered.

For questions regarding ‎ISTSS Awards, please contact the ISTSS Executive Office.

Global Travel Award

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 Travel Awards are available from ISTSS each year to support Annual Meeting attendees coming from underserved regions of the world (e.g., lower- and middle-income countries; underresourced communities in higher income countries) and experiencing financial hardship with fees or travel costs. The travel awards are supported by voluntary contributions from ISTSS members and vary each year in terms of availability.

Student Travel Award

The Student Travel Award provides $2,000 travel grant to students to support their participation and contribution to the ISTSS annual meetings. The potential awardee will need to confirm that in case of receiving award/funding s/he will be able to participate. Preference will be given to students from underrepresented, underserved and economically disadvantaged communities, regions and countries.
