CADTH is pleased to announce the 2017 CADTH Symposium Travel Award Program for students and patient group representatives.

Since 2007, CADTH has provided financial support toward conference-related costs for more than 190 student and patient group representatives as part of our commitment to making this important event accessible to all health care stakeholders.

This year, eligible students and patient group representatives can receive up to $1,500 to offset registration, travel, food, accommodation, and other conference-related expenses.

For Students

  • The CADTH Symposium offers an excellent opportunity to share your research, learn about the latest advancements in health technology assessment (HTA), and interact with peers from across the country as well as leading Canadian and international experts. 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.

For Patient Group Representatives

  • It’s important that your voice is heard. If you work for a not-for-profit, patient-related organization, or a citizen’s organization interested in health policy, we invite you to apply for a travel award.

How to Apply

Step 1: Review the 2017 CADTH Symposium Travel Award Program Criteria

Step 2: Complete and submit the 2017 Travel Awards Application form to CADTH by December 9, 2016.
