TRAVEL AWARDS

Attention Fellows, Residents, and Medical Students:
4 Travel Awards Available for SPD Members

Travel awards are available on a competitive basis to fellows, residents, and medical students who are SPD members and present Cases of the Year or posters at the SPD Annual Meeting. This is an effort to encourage participation among trainees interested in pediatric dermatology and helps provide recognition for exceptional work as well as financial assistance to attend the meeting. Each award is $1,000. Apply for awards at the time of case/poster submission by checking the appropriate box on the form.

SPD Travel Awards
The SPD Awards and Grants Committee will evaluate the quality of the case/poster, focusing on whether it presents “new” information, is relevant to care of children with skin diseases, quality of data, and approved consent process.

  • Two $1,000 awards available to fellows, residents, or medical students
  • MEDICAL STUDENT TRAVEL AWARD - One $1,000 award available just for medical students

American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Section on Dermatology Travel Award
One $1,000 Travel Award will be given by the AAP Section on Dermatology. Preference will be given to abstracts that focus on pediatric dermatology education, workforce, Medical Home, and collaborating with pediatrician partners.
