Stipends to partially support travel ($400) and complimentary registration are given on a competitive basis. Applicants must be medical students, pediatric residents, chief residents, or med-peds residents currently enrolled in an ACGME-accredited pediatric residency program. Priority is given to those trainees earlier in their education (i.e., PL-1 and PL-2). This grant is restricted to a one-time acceptance.

The request to be considered must include the following:

  • Recommendation by an Active member of the ASPN who agrees to accompany the trainee to the meeting.
  • Applicant’s curriculum vitae.
  • One page statement from the candidate describing his/her interest and possible career plans in pediatric nephrology.

It is important that all of the documents accompany your request.

Applicants must commit to attend the entire meeting if selected.

Next application cycle will open in Winter 2019.
