Conference Scholarships

2017 AHMA Conference
Travel Scholarship Application

The fifth annual patient conference of the American Headache and Migraine Association will be held in Boston, MA, on Sunday, June 11, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

More information about the conference and a link to the registration page can be found on our conference page.

 

The AHMA realizes that attending this conference is not financially within reach of all of our members. We have, therefore, pulled together the funding to offer a limited number travel scholarships of up to $1000 each to help cover transportation, conference hotel, and meals.

 

About the Scholarships:

  • There are people who absolutely cannot attend without financial assistance. Please do not apply for a scholarship if it is possible for you to attend without this assistance.

  • Each scholarship is intended for one patient. It does not include a companion.

  • Scholarships can be applied to hotel costs for the night before the conference and the night of the conference only.

  • Scholarship recipients are expected to travel to and from the conference by the least expensive mode of travel.

 

All scholarship recipients will be required to:

  • Complete a W-9 form.

  • Keep and submit copies receipts for travel, conference hotel, and meals.

  • Submit copies of receipts along with any unused portion of the scholarship funding.

    • Failure to provide documentation of expenses and/or return any unused portion will result in your scholarship being considered taxable income and you will receive a 1099.

 

If you want to apply for one of the travel scholarships, please

complete the form below. All parts of the form are mandatory.

Please note: The conference is a benefit of AHMA membership;

therefore, you must have be a member of AHMA for at least 3 months to apply for these scholarships.
