Education Meeting Support

The IAP Education Committee can assist with funding to support your education Meeting or Event


The procedure for requesting financial support for Scientific Meetings and Ambassadors is: 

1.  Please use the webform shown above (or click here) to submit requests for financial support.  

2. At the next meeting of the Education Committee requests will be reviewed followed by a vote on whether to support the request and if approved, for the amount to be awarded. The Education Committee meets twice each year, at which time submissions are reviewed. These include

and often a joint session with the European Congress. 

Specific dates for upcoming meetings can be found here.

3. Requests that have been approved by the Education Committee are then forwarded by the IAP Secretary to the IAP Finance Committee/Assistant Treasurer who will contact the requestor to arrange for the disbursement of funds. 

In making applications please note: 

1. Requests for financial support for IAP Assemblies, Divisions or Members for Assembly/Divisional Meetings or other scientific activities and Ambassadors should, if possible, be received three months in advance of Education Committee Meetings.

2. When submitting a request through the webform, please include the following details of the purpose and scientific content of the planned Scientific Meeting and Ambassadorial activities:

3. The maximum funding request currently is $3500 USD (minimum of $2400 USD). Funds applied for must specify not only their intended use but also be accompanied by the estimated costs in US dollars, e.g. travel cost(s) of Lecturer(s).   Funds may not be used for hospitality/entertainment purposes. 

4. Preference is given to underserved Divisions who have difficulty in obtaining funds from other sources and/or sponsorship from other Divisions and Assemblies. 

5. Divisions should not regularly apply for financial support on an annual basis unless special circumstances exist, such as establishing new educational activities on a pump-priming basis. Funds up to $3500 USD can be disbursed across more than one year to support multiyear start up support projects. 

6. Scientific meetings and Ambassadorial activities supported by the IAP must display the IAP Seal or Logo on brochures/programmes. They are available on the IAP Central website under Corporate Seals and Logos

7. After meetings supported by the IAP, a full report including financial details must be received by the IAP Education Committee Chair within four (4) months of the conclusion of the meeting.   Click here to download the report form.
