Emerging Leaders Conference Scholarships (50 available)

The AUCD Annual Conference is an amazing learning and networking opportunity! AUCD is pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for Emerging Leaders to support their attendance to the AUCD 2020 Conference.

This year these scholarships will be available to offset the cost of the virtual conference registration fee.

Scholarships are available to (a) current trainees and (b) former trainees presenting work conducted while a trainee and completed their traineeship no earlier than December 2019
Priority will be given to those who have not attended the Conference before.

Those who receive Emerging Leaders Scholarships are required to engage in activities that align with AUCD's Strategic Map.

 

AUCD Strategic Map

You can also find more information on AUCD's Strategic Map on AUCD's website.

 

Applicants can choose their preference of which strategic priority they'd like to be engaged in, but it is not guaranteed. Each priority area will have opportunities for trainees to participate during and after the conference in different activities. Please look at the online agenda to check when each meeting session is happening to plan accordingly. You will be expected to attend all required sessions listed. Since the pre-conference orientation for trainees (scheduled for November 12 at 5pm ET) falls outside the AUCD Conference, please contact Maureen Johnson ([email protected]) if you are unable to attend the event.
