IES General Fund
By donating to the IES General Fund, you help provide the resources needed to finance the various educational activities that advance our mission. This enables IES to continue offering valuable benefits and opportunities to our members without raising membership dues. This is especially important for maintaining the discounts available to Trainee Members.
Travel Scholarship Fund
Your donation to the Travel Scholarship Fund provides essential funds for young scientists to attend the biennial Symposium and your donation will be paid directly to awardees to off-set the costs of their registration fee, hotel and travel ($1,000 USD per awardee). Priority will be given to young scientists from low and middle-income countries, under-represented minorities, and applicants with high scoring abstracts.
Every dollar donated helps IES award more Travel Grants!
"The IES travel grant allowed me to attend my first international conference and network with faculty members at different medical schools. The connections I made at the conference have helped me in my journey of applying to M.D./Ph.D programs and further solidified my desire to become a physician-scientist."
Rodaba Rahim, United States (Travel Grant Recipient - 2023)
"Attending the IES symposium in Canada last summer, made possible by the travel grant from IES, was a fantastic experience. Presenting my poster to a group of esteemed experts in our field offered a unique opportunity for direct feedback, which was both enlightening and constructive.The congress itself was an excellent blend of basic science and clinical lectures. Additionally this year with initiatives like breakfast with mentors and roundtable discussions in a less formal setting, an ideal environment was created for exploring diverse topics and participating in stimulating debates. It was an enriching way to network with peers and learn from experienced professionals. Overall, the experience of attending the IES congress was not just positive, but incredibly rewarding. It allowed me to step outside of my usual professional setting, absorb new information, and make meaningful connections. I am thankful for the opportunity provided by IES, as it clearly improved my approach to clinical practice and research."
