Travel Grants

A major priority for the World Molecular Imaging Congress is to support the next generation of researchers in our field. To further guide their participation and attendance, the WMIC honorably awards Travel Stipends to students, postdoctoral and qualifying trainees who wish to present abstracts at the congress. Selection of Travel Stipend recipients will be based upon the abstract grade and ranking, current membership status as well as travel award application.

Those wishing to apply for Student Travel Stipends MUST meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Apply before June 20, 2017: the abstract submission deadline through the “Awards” step of the abstract submission site.
  • Be an undergraduate, graduate, or postgraduate student, postdoctoral fellow, or qualifying trainee.
  • Be a current WMIS, ESMI or FASMI student member.
  • Be the first author of the accepted abstract (oral or poster).
  • Be listed as the presenting author and available to present the abstract (oral or poster) at the congress. (Awards are NOT awarded to those who do not personally attend and no one else may present in their place).
