Student Bursaries for the 2019 CSAM Conference

May 28

CSAM now accepting applications for Student Bursaries

The Canadian Society for Addiction Medicine is offering 8 bursaries to students interested in the field of Addictions Medicine to attend the CSAM 2019 Annual Scientific Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia October 24 to 27, 2019.

Each bursary award will help to fund transportation and accommodation costs. Conference fees and the Fundamentals Course fee will be waived for successful bursary applicants.

The bursaries are open to all students who:

  • study in a health-care related field with an interest in Addiction Medicine
  • attend a Canadian university or college
  • are at least 18 years of age
  • are undergraduate or graduate students
  • are enrolled in any program of study in a healthcare-related field
  • have the support of their program/supervisor to attend the conference

Due consideration will be given to applicants who identify as belonging to or working within an underrepresented group within the field.  Higher consideration will be given to applicants who plan to contribute to the conference proceedings.

The deadline for submission of bursary applications is June 30, 2019. Late submissions will not be considered. Bursaries will not be issued to applicants who have previously received a bursary. A complete application must also include a letter of support from a teacher or supervisor that confirms you are in a program of study at a Canadian university or college and supports your attendance at the CSAM 2019 conference.

Please send the bursary form and letter of support by email to admin@csam-smca.org.  Bursary applicants who would like to submit an abstract for a poster can email admin@csam-smca.org about the submission process.

Successful applicants commit to attending the entire conference, including the Fundamentals Course. A stipend of $1000 will also be issued to help defray travel and hotel costs. If a bursary recipient does not attend CSAM 2019 no funds will be awarded. Advance notice of non-attendance is requested so that the bursary may be issued to another student.
