New for the 2018 Conference! Four Student Bursaries Available

May 17

The Canadian Society for Addiction Medicine is offering 4 (four) bursaries to students interested in the field of Addictions Medicine to attend the 2018 CSAM Scientific Meeting in Vancouver, BC, October 25-28, 2018.

Each bursary award will include funds towards transportation costs and a Superpass to attend the conference and the Fundamentals Course. The purpose of the bursaries is to enable students to attend the CSAM conference.

The bursaries are open to students:

  • in a health-care related field with an interest in addictions
  • attending a Canadian university or college
  • ages 18 or above
  • may include students in undergraduate, graduate, medical, nursing, college-level and other programs of study in a healthcare or health-care related field
  • may be of particular interest to students who submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentation to the conference
  • who have the support of a supervisor or teacher to attend the conference

Deadline for receipt of applications is June 15, 2018 at midnight; retroactive applications will not be accepted or approved.

A complete application consists of:

  • the completed application
  • a letter from a teacher or supervisor who confirms you are in a program of study at a Canadian university or college AND supports your attendance at the CSAM 2018 conference

Please send the completed bursary form and a letter of support from a teacher or supervisor together via email to admin@csam-smca.org.  Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Successful applicants will be able to attend the entire conference and Fundamentals course and be reimbursed for travel expenses up to $1000 (receipt required).   If a bursary recipient does not attend CSAM 2018 no funds will be dispersed, nor can the bursary be used for the 2019 conference.
