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 that you will be presenting at the conference (i.e. acceptance email or highlighted conference programme with your name and institution)
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 (preferred), or by mail.
Please note: ALL submissions via email must have all of the above listed documents attached as ONE PDF document, labelled by the applicant's last name.
A confirmation email will be sent to all applicants within one week after submitting their application. If an applicant does not receive a confirmation email after one week of submitting, please email the PDFO.
Applications can be submitted up to 3 months in advance of the calendar quarter in which the travel will occur (based on the first date of travel). Please note the following dates for the upcoming fiscal year.
