Fellowship status must be confirmed in writing by the applicant’s fellowship director or training facilitator, and submitted at the time of application. Applications received without written verification of fellowship status will not be accepted.

DEADLINE: March 30, 2018
The 2018 PAS Congress Fellowship Scholarship program will accept applications from January 8, 2018 – March 30, 2018. Late submissions will not be accepted.
Submitted PAS Congress Fellowship Scholarship applications will receive a cumulative score based on the responses provided. Fellowship verification letters will be reviewed and program directors may be contacted as needed for confirmation. The selected Fellowship Scholarship awardees will be verified by the PAS Congress Scientific Program Committee Chairs.
A confirmation email will be automatically sent to the email address provided in the application. This email is verification that the submission was successfully received and will be reviewed. If a confirmation email is not received within 24 hours of submission, it is likely that the application was not successfully received, and must be resubmitted.
All applicants will receive a notification email regarding the outcome of their application in April 2018. The results of the notification are final; requests for reevaluation will not considered.
Fellowship Scholarship recipients will receive waived registration fees and $1,000 USD to assist with the cost of travel and participation at the 2018 PAS Congress. Please note that housing, meals and transportation are not provided.
Attendance at the 2018 PAS Congress is required for all Fellowship Scholarship recipients. Please only apply for a Fellowship Scholarship if you plan to travel to Miami, FL for the 2018 PAS Congress.
If you are awarded a Fellowship Scholarship and your attendance status for the PAS Congress changes for any reason, please contact the MDS International Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org at the earliest opportunity so we may redistribute the scholarship to another qualified candidate. Please note: the PAS Congress Fellowship Scholarship is only transferrable via the MDS International Secretariat.
