Educational Grant Program

I-ACT for Children has re-formulated our popular travel grant program to adapt to the new environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The updated I-ACT for Children Educational Grant Program supports the continuing education of those involved in pediatric clinical trial research. The grant is designed specifically to support attendance at/participation in a research conference or course by early-stage investigators, study nurses or coordinators, or research administration staff who support pediatric clinical trials.

This year, eligible educational programs will include those that do not require travel, such as continuing education or college/university courses that are relevant to pediatric clinical trial research. Four grants of up to $2,500 each will be awarded.

The Educational Grant Program is open only to staff of I-ACT for Children network sites. The deadline for applications is August 31, 2020.

Note: Applicants must submit their application form to the I-ACT for Children site Point of Contact (POC) at their site, who will review and select up to two per site for submission. Applications will not be accepted from individual applicants.

The earliest conference/course attendance date is September 23, 2020; all conferences/courses must be complete by July 31, 2021.
