International Fellows-in-Training Travel Scholarship

Scholarship Description

International Fellows-in-Training Travel Scholarships are designed to financially assist research and non-research fellows and residents-in-training in allergy/immunology in attending the AAAAI’s Annual Meeting.

This program offers international allergy/immunology fellows-in-training the opportunity to attend the meeting and to:
Meet other allergists/immunologists and to learn from others’experiences;
Keep abreast of the current research in the field; and
Contribute to the scientific development of the field.
