TEDMED has just announced a $2 million scholarship program to provide financial support to qualified applicants for its upcoming TEDMED 2012 conference. The event will be held April 10-13 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
We are delighted to inform you that the AAU has secured at least one (and possibly two) guaranteed half-scholarships for each of our member institutions. We encourage interested students, staff, faculty members, as well as other innovators and leaders from our member institutions to apply immediately.
The attached brochure and Q&A tells you everything you need to know about the scholarships available, target recipients and the application process. If your institution is hosting the TEDMEDLive simulcast, preference will be given to two individuals (students, staff and/or faculty) from your institution. Preference also will be given to veterans and active duty military personnel.
Please note that scholarship funding is intended to specifically subsidize all or part of the conference fee of $4,950. Travel, lodging, and personal expenses remain the responsibility of the recipient. Both half and full scholarships are available, although there will be more half scholarships granted than full to enable more people to attend the event.
Students, staff and faculty can apply now at www.TEDMED.com or contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or have difficulty in accessing the application form. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
