Thanks to those who have already donated to the 2020 Congress Travel Grants fund. These funds are used to support the travel costs of IFHE members from developing countries to attend Congress in Atlanta in August 2020.
While the 45 budgeted travel grants will be for $1000, donations can be made for any amount and donations will be pooled together to make a $1000 grant. Donations are requested by June 30, 2019 so potential attendees can request and be awarded the grant by the end of 2019. Early Bird Registration for Congress will open in April 2020.
