Apply for Travel Award

We are pleased to announce that the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health research committee will continue to offer Department of Paediatrics and Child Health travel awards for 2021 via the departmental research office (geanine.hopley@uct.ac.za).

Please note that, as with the departmental research awards, there are 2 calls each year for applications. This year the second (and final) deadline for applications will be Tuesday, 31 August 2021.

Please also note that as a result of the ongoing uncertainty around travel due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the fact that most conferences have now moved to a virtual format, for this round of applications we will only be considering those applications requesting cover of registration costs for virtual conferences.

Attached please find the guidelines and the application process. (Please note only electronic submissions will currently be accepted.)
