The Travel Support Fund of the 2018 ISRRT World Congress

 The International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists ISRRT is pleased to announce that this fund is once again available to assist radiographers and medical radiation technologists from lower and middle income countries, as defined by the World Bank (see: http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups#Upper_middle_income) to participate in the 2018 ISRRT World Congress, which will take place from April 12 to 15 in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. 

 The fund will cover the certain costs of return airfare at the cheapest rate and an amount for the registration fee and incidentals.  Air travel will be arranged by the Trinidad and Tobago travel agency.

 A selection committee will review applications for support. The selection committee members will be identified by the organisations that have made significant donations for the travel fund.

 The judging criteria is as follows:

The applicant has,

  1. Has submitted an abstract that has been selected for presentation. Increased weight will be given to those making oral presentations.
  2. Is a member of the ISRRT Council, representing a country that is up-to-date in its dues payment.
  3. Has committed to sharing the information they will learn at the congress to strengthen their home society and the profession of medical radiation technology, particularly in their own country.  As part of the application, the applicant will be asked to identify how they will do this.  The strength of this proposal will be one of the factors considered by the selection committee.
  4. Has committed to provide, following the congress, a brief report to the ISRRT of one to two pages in which they explain how they addressed selection criteria 3.

Failure to provide a report may result in the payment being reclaimed.
