TRAVEL GRANT

The Asia-Pacific Strabismus and Paediatric Ophthamology Society (APSPOS) was established in 2008 aiming to assist paediatric ophthalmological and strabismus development in the Asia-Pacific region and provide a platform for good integration of skills and knowledge of clinicians in this subspecialty.

 

We are pleased to offer up to 3 APSPOS Travel Grants for young ophthalmologists in the Asia-Pacific region who have submitted an abstract to the APSPOS-HKPOC 2017 and will attend BOTH the APSPOS-HKPOC 2017 in Hong Kong and CAPOS/AAPOS Meeting in Shanghai.

 

Priority will be given to ophthalmologists who are aged 40 or below, from a developing country and whose presentations (free paper or poster) have been accepted by the Scientific Program Committee of the APSPOS-HKPOC 2017. Each successful applicant will receive US$500 if they live outside the host country of the APSPOS-HKPOC 2017 (i.e. Hong Kong) whereas those who live in the host country will receive US$300.

 

Interested young ophthalmologists should complete the online application form at http://congress.apspos.org/ by July 5 at 11:59 pm (GMT+8). Selection results will be announced in mid-August together with abstract selection results.
