This grant is meant to support organizers fund a conference/workshop which is expected to benefit CAG members and trainees (basic and/or clinical). The grant can be used to offset costs incurred by allowing trainees to attend the meeting (e.g. registration, travel, accommodation and meals) but not used for payment of honorarium. A maximum of 2 workshops will be supported in any one 12-month period between July 1st and June 30th.

Two grants, of up to $5,000 each, may be awarded.

  • Applicant(s) must be CAG members in good standing for at least three years
  • The CAG’s sponsorship must be formally recognized on all conference materials and related signage.
  • The applicant may not apply concurrently for the CAG Research Conference Grant.
