Scholarship & Travel Grant Submission Forms

Compete for your chance to win a travel grant to attend an AAPA Fall Conference or Spring Meeting within the next two years. A total of four travel grants will be awarded to Fellow members in 2017 and one travel grant will be awarded to a 2nd year Student Non-Delegate member. Additionally, there will be a Student General Educational Scholarship available to all 2nd year students.

Every scholarship and travel grant submission is peer-reviewed, therefore, if awarded, it comes with a published peer-review article that can be added to a resume.
