Symposium 2024

Symposium 2024 Travel Awards Program Now Accepting Applications

We are pleased to announce the 2024 Symposium Travel Awards Program is now accepting applications to support attendance by individuals who would not be able to participate in the Symposium without financial support.

Launched in 2007, the program is part of our commitment to making this important event accessible to all health care stakeholders. This year, eligible applicants can receive up to $3,000 to offset, registration, travel, food, accommodation, and other Symposium-related expenses.


To be eligible for a Travel Award, applicants must represent one of the following groups:

Students: The 2024 Symposium offers an excellent opportunity to share your research, learn about the latest advancements in health technology assessment, and interact with peers from across the country (as well as experts from Canada and internationally). If you’re a full-time undergraduate or graduate student attending a degree-granting institution in Canada and taking courses in a field relevant to CADTH’s work, we invite you to apply for a travel award.

Patients and Caregivers: It’s important that your voice is heard. If you are a patient or caregiver affiliated with a not-for-profit, health care or patient-related or citizen organization and are contributing to health care or health policy, we invite you to apply for a travel award.

Members of Equity-Deserving Groups: CADTH embraces the principles of inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility and encourages applications from individuals associated with a community group, or association working to improve equity in health systems. If you have lived and/or professional experience to share about your equity-deserving group’s health perspectives and priorities, we invite you to apply for a travel award.

How to apply

Step 1: Review the 2024 Symposium Travel Awards Program criteria 

Step 2: Complete and submit the 2024 Travel Awards Application form to CADTH by Friday, April 19, 2024.
