Travel Scholarship Programme

To facilitate wide-ranging participation at ASLM2016, ASLM offers the ASLM2016 Travel Scholarship Programme to laboratory medicine professionals.

Scholarships provide financial support, on a competitive basis, to professionals and students who have submitted an abstract and need external funding in order to attend the ASLM2016 conference.

Each scholarship covers costs related to conference registration, air travel, lodging, and daily per diem support for the exclusive purpose of attending ASLM2016 in Cape Town, South Africa.
