Bursaries for primary caregivers

ISTCP-X offers a limited number of bursaries for primary caregivers. These are intended to cover (in part) the additional costs incurred from attending the ISTCP-X congress. A cap of 10 000 NOK may be imposed in case of a large number applications in order to allow us to support as many primary caregivers attending the conference as possible. Priority will be given to invited speakers, session chairs and members of the scientific committee. Applicants holding a PhD degree will also be given priority. Applications are to be submitted to info@istcp-2019.org by March 15 2019. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of the application by April 1 2019. The bursaries will only be paid against documented expenses submitted to info@istcp-2019.org after the end of the conference.

Although other expenses may be considered, the bursaries are primarily meant to provide support for:

  • Caregiving/Child care services at home (receipts must be provided).
  • Travel and accommodation expenses for child(ren) and/or caregiver to the conference. It is expected that children and caregiver to as large extent as possible share accommodation with the primary caregiver during the conference.
  • Travel expenses for caregivers to the home of the primary caregiver.
  • Travel for child(ren) to the home of their caregivers.
