Deadline: application by letter at any time
Small Conference grants may be offered in support of the following:
Grants to support small conferences which are focussed on subjects of direct relevance to cystic fibrosis. Such grants will be up to a maximum of $2,500; and are intended to supplement other funding sources.
Grants to facilitate the exchange of special expertise between larger, university-based CF clinics and smaller, more remote clinics. Requests of this type will involve fewer individuals, and will not normally exceed $1,000.
Applications will be accepted only from CF clinic directors and Cystic Fibrosis Canada-funded investigators where the applicant is a member of the conference organizing committee but not a speaker, and the priority would be for conferences held in Canada.
Subject to the availability of funds, grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Frequency of application from any particular individual or group should be reasonable.
Applications should be made in the form of a letter. For medical/scientific conferences, the application must indicate who is organizing and attending the conference, the specific topic/s and purpose of the conference and include an itemized budget for the conference support requested. For inter-clinic exchanges, the application must specify the proposed arrangements for, and the specific purpose of the exchange.
Applications may be submitted at any time, but Cystic Fibrosis Canada should be consulted in advance with respect to the availability of funds.
