Susan L. Stokes Travel Awards

The Susan L. Stokes Travel Awards for CISTM Presenters

In honor of her many years of selfless volunteer service to ISTM, the Board of Directors renamed the ‘Travel Awards’ to the ‘Susan L. Stokes Travel Awards’. Susan was instrumental in the conception and early years of ISTM, working ceaselessly to ensure that the Society would be strong and operationally sound. A limited number of travel awards are presented to individuals working in the field of travel medicine who are in developing countries wishing to present research or a clinical abstract at the biennial meeting of ISTM. These awards were established to make it possible for those who otherwise would not have the funding to attend. Those wishing to read more about Susan can do so by reading the July 2011 issue of NewsShare.

Typical awards will be in the range of USD 10,000 to USD 15,000. Detailed information on proposal criteria, as well as application forms, can be provided by the ISTM Secretariat.
