Closing date for applications
Midnight Sunday 28 August 2022


The SA Heart® Educational Grants portal is now closed and no further applications will be accepted for the 2022 Congress. 

We would like to share an update so that you are aware of the timelines that the team is working with:

  • Grant applications closed at midnight on Sunday 28th August
  • Once the registration for grant applications close, all the applications will be submitted to the SA Heart Committee for review and consideration to be matched with the educational grants criteria.
  • We are expecting the outcomes on whether delegates have been successful in securing an educational grant to be made available by the SA Heart Committee by mid September.
  • Once this information is available we will get in touch with each applicant via email regarding whether their application has been successful or not.
  • Please note that an educational grant application does not guarantee that you will be able to secure sponsorship to attend the congress

Should you have any queries please contact  Amy Wolfe on  

Guidance on criteria for the selection of grant recipients

Selection criteria include the following:

  • The applicant’s area of practice / expertise must be directly related to the professional areas represented by the objectives of the SA Heart® Face to Face Congress 2022.
  • The applicant should not have received regular and recent funding to the SA Heart® Congress.  It is intended to rotate educational grants to benefit as many individuals as possible.

In addition, preference may be given to:

  • Young practitioners and developing practitioners.
  • Those fulfilling roles as educators.
  • Those from historically disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • Those from more remote geographic locations e.g. rural areas and inaccessible locations.
  • Gender may be used as an additional criteria.

Restricted grants offered by industry may have a separate or additional criteria as stipulated by the sponsoring company. Those handling the sponsorships from SA Heart® together with the congress organisers are obliged to honour all such specifications when allocating educational grants.
