Each scholarship is intended to support expenses related to attending the ATS International Conference including registration, accommodations and related daily costs such as meals and local transportation.

An eligible applicant for the ITS will be an author/co-author on an abstract(s) accepted for presentation at the ATS 2018 International Conference, and who meet the requirements listed below.
