About the I-ACT for Children Travel Grant Program


I-ACT sponsors a Travel Grant Program to support the continuing education of those involved in pediatric clinical trial research. The I-ACT Travel Grant is designed specifically to support the attendance of an early stage Investigator, Study Nurse or Coordinator, Research Administrator or Research Administration staff that supports clinical trials at a relevant research conference.

Two $5,000 grants are awarded in January each year.


The submission period for this award has closed, and it will reopen in Q4 of 2019. 


Eligibility Criteria

  • Be at an I-ACT for Children Member Site
  • Be involved in pediatric clinical trials.
  • Provide the name, date and location of the conference they wish to attend and how it relates to their work in pediatric research.
  • Provide a written statement that describes how the award will benefit the applicant and his/her home institution (At least one letter of support from the home institution, signed by the POC or Physician Site Champion must be included). The applicant and/or the institutional support letter(s) must demonstrate that the applicant has secured approval from his/her supervisor to attend the meeting.
