There is a limited number of travel scholarships available for patient advocates who need assistance to attend the Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference on November 15 & 16 in Baltimore, MD.* This is a Medical Conference with high level scientific content, however, we will also offer a limited program for advocates. It is recommended that attendees have experience in advocacy or research. Scholarship award selection will be based on both need and experience. Scholarships are provided by Theresa’s Research Foundation.
Awards can be up to $750 for travel and hotel. The cost for two nights lodging at the conference hotel is $351.12 and conference registration for patients/advocates is $10. The remainder of the reward may be used to cover transportation.
The deadline for applications is July 27, 2018. Awards will be announced on or around August 10th, 2018.
If you are awarded a scholarship, you will then be required to register for the conference and make your own hotel and travel arrangements. All receipts must be submitted for reimbursement after the conference.
*Please note that scholarship recipients are expected to attend the entire conference.
