GRANTS & AWARDS

Grants and Awards Application Form

The following awards and grants are available to assist the MICCAI community to attend MICCAI 2024. Eligible applicants must apply as early as possible. The adjudication and notification process will be carried out on a rolling basis, to allow time for the grantees to make travel arrangements and obtain visas to the host country if needed. Applicants can apply for multiple grants or awards in the same application form but will not be allocated more than one. The grants/awards are intended to support in-person participation in the MICCAI conference. If a selected grantee or awardee is not able to attend the conference in person, the grant will go to the next candidate on the ranked list.

I. MICCAI Society Registration and Travel Grants

For more details, please refer to the MICCAI Society Registration and Travel Grants Guidelines.

Recipients of the MICCAI Society Registration Grants will receive waiver codes to cover main conference and satellite event registrations and one-year society membership fee.

Recipients of the MICCAI Society Travel Grants will receive financial support of up to $2,500 per grant to contribute towards conference registration, MICCAI membership, lodging, and travel costs.

Eligibility:

All members of the MICCAI community are eligible to apply for the MICCAI Registration and Travel Grants.

The selection of the grantees will prioritize the following criteria:
