Applicants for the scholarship must come from low- and middle-income countries and who would be otherwise unable to participate in the absence of registration support.

The Scholarship Includes:

  • One complimentary registration to the 14th Annual Science of D&I Conference.

Do You Qualify for a Patient Scholarship?
Applicants for the scholarship must be attending the D&I Conference primarily to represent patients/consumers and add a patient voice to the discussion. Preference will be given to active and engaged patients who would be otherwise unable to participate in the absence of registration support. Individuals employed as full-time consultants, or in any paid capacity for health technology (including startups), pharmaceutical or device manufacturers, health care delivery systems, and state or federal government agencies are unlikely to qualify.

Applicants will be evaluated based on a number of criteria including:

  • Statement of interest (required with application)
  • Prior experience in patient advocacy or engagement.
  • Participation in the D&I Conference in previous years (we aim to have a mix of new and returning participants).
  • Potential for applicant to elevate underrepresented or minority communities.
  • Potential for applicant to diversify geographic representation at the conference.
