Global and Student Travel Awards

ISTSS typically offers a select number of Global Travel Awards and Student Travel Awards each year. Because the 2020 and 2021 annual meetings were virtual, we offered Global and Student Registration Awards that covered the cost of registration for the ISTSS Annual Meeting.

ISTSS 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 to support attendees coming from underserved regions of the world (e.g., low- and middle-income countries; underresourced communities in higher income countries) and experiencing financial hardship with meeting costs.

ISTSS Global Travel 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 are 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 identifes 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 Travel 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.

ISTSS Student Travel Award

ISTSS is committed to providing professional development opportunities for students training in the field of traumatic stress. The cost of attending the ISTSS Annual Meeting is often beyond the financial capabilities of students. Therefore, the ISTSS Student Travel Awards are offered to offset these costs when possible for a select number of students. The Awards are competitive and priority will be given to students whose work has been accepted for presentation at the ISTSS Annual Meeting.
