Prior to submitting your application, be sure to carefully review the eligibility criteria below. As indicated in the Eligibility Summary below, PDFs from the Faculty of Science and from the Faculty of Medicine submit applications directly to their respective faculties and not to the PDFO.
To apply, the following documents must be submitted to the PDFO:
- A completed PDF Travel Awards Application Form
- A copy of the applicant’s CV (4 page maximum)
- An outline of the conference
- Proof of presentation (This should include correspondence from event organizers showing presenter name, date, and title of presentation.).
If confirmation of acceptance for conference presentation has not been received before the travel award application date, please submit proof of submission. Should you be selected for a PDF Travel Award, the award will be conditional based on conference acceptance.
Submissions can be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Submissions must have all of the above listed documents attached as ONE PDF document, labelled "Lastname, Firstname – Travel Award Application". Photographs of applications or of any application components will not be accepted.
