Dear Colleagues:

As President of the International Immunocompromised Host Society (ICHS), I am pleased inform you that ICHS will offer a limited number of travel grants to encourage trainees and young investigators, particularly, those from under developed countries, to attend the 20th Symposium on Infections in the Immunocompromised Host in Athens.  Awards of up to $1,000 (USD) will be available in two categories: 1) trainees (students, residents, fellows) and 2) junior faculty [whose research was performed in the first three years following graduation].  The travel grants are competitive in nature, with awards being granted for top quality abstracts as determined by an ICHS selection committee.  The applications (link below) must be accompanied by an abstract in one of the approved topics AND an institutional letter indicating that the applicant is / was performing research in the category for which they are applying.  The deadline for submitting the application for these awards was March 20, 2018.

 Thank you for submitting your abstract to ICHS.
