The Conquer Cancer Foundation Patient Advocate Scholarship Program

Patient advocates are invited to apply for a scholarship to attend the ASCO Annual Meeting, taking place June 1- 5, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.  The scholarship program will be announced in early spring 2018.

Scholarships are intended for expenses related to air or train travel, lodging, and meeting registration for advocates traveling from outside the Chicago area to attend the meeting.  

Scholarship recipients based in the United States will be reimbursed after the ASCO Annual Meeting and upon receipt of an expense form, applicable receipts, an IRS W-9 form, and a brief testimonial.  Scholarship recipients based outside of the Continental United States will receive U.S. currency during the ASCO Annual Meeting in Chicago.

About the Conquer Cancer Foundation Patient Advocate Scholarship Program

The Conquer Cancer Foundation Patient Advocate Scholarship Program is an opportunity for patient advocates to attend the Annual Meeting and then return to their organizations and their communities to share what they have learned.  It is also our hope that scholarship recipients will be motivated to seek out and participate in consumer advocacy opportunities, lending a crucial perspective and making a difference in the lives of people affected by cancer.
