Conference Scholarships

The ICCEC 2020 organisers are able to award full or partial conference scholarships to deserving applicants.

The scholarship committee will evaluate the proposals received by the deadline, make the selection, and inform all applicants of the results. The scholarship committee is mindful of the desirability of building clinical ethics consultation capacity in lower-middle-income settings.

Successful applicants bear the costs and responsibility of obtaining travel visas if this is required for travel to South Africa. The organisers will provide a scholarship award letter and official letter of invitation for visa purposes.
