2021 Travel Awards - Dept of Paediatrics & Child Health
Dear Departmental Member
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 for2021 via the departmental research office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please note that, as with the departmental research awards, there are 2 calls each year for applications.This year thesecond (and final)deadline for applications will beTuesday, 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.)
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and in a continuing bid to “flatten the curve”, this year we will once again be hosting our annual Research Days as a virtual event. (Please note, however, that we will be reverting to the one-and-a-half day format.)
Furthermore, due to the fluid nature of the pandemic, please note that the timelines of some activities that impact our department will only be finalized in the latter half of the year.
For now, could we please ask that you kindly diarise the proposed dates for the 2021 Department of Paediatrics & Child Health Research Days (SEE HERE) and ensure that clinics are cancelled to allow as many departmental members to attend as possible? If dates do need to change, we endeavour to notify you as early as possible.
