ATS Abstract Scholarships

ATS offers a limited number of abstract scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to individuals based on the quality of abstracts submitted as reviewed by the Assembly Program Committees. The number of scholarships given varies from year to year.

Decisions about scholarships are usually made by the end of January prior to the Conference. Abstract authors whose abstracts are selected to receive a scholarship will be notified in February via email.

The scholarship includes:

  • In the year the abstract scholarship is received the abstract author will receive a code for a full In-Training Registration to the ATS International Conference
  • The code will have to be used by the early bird conference registration deadline and will not work after the deadline.
  • Abstract Awardees must be an ATS member before using the code.  If you are not an ATS member the code will not work
  • All codes are non-transferrable

To qualify for a scholarship, you must meet the criteria listed below:

  • The applicant must be a Trainee Member.  Eligible applicants are trainees who are students, residents, fellows (holders of MD or PhD degrees) or equivalent
  • The applicant must have submitted a meritorious abstract to be presented at the ATS International Conference (as reviewed and programmed by your Assembly Program Committee)
  • The applicant must be registered for and attend the ATS International Conference
  • Applicant must have checked the appropriate box in the questionnaire section of the abstract online submission program, indicating their wish to be considered for an abstract scholarship
  • The applicant must be an ATS member at the time of accepting the abstract scholarship (The code will not work at the time you register if you are not a member)
  • The applicant cannot receive any other scholarship within the ATS that includes conference registration

Before checking the appropriate box in the questionnaire section of the abstract online submission program, please ensure that you meet the criteria above.

Once the appropriate box in the questionnaire section of the abstract online submission program is selected, the Assembly Program Committee members will be aware that you are interested in being considered for a scholarship should one be available. 

Late breaking abstracts will not be considered.

If you have questions about the ATS abstract scholarship program or the criteria listed above, please contact Bridget Nance at bnance@thoracic.org or by telephone at 212-315-8695.
