EDUCATIONAL GRANT APPLICATION
Due to the move back to a face-to-face congress this year, applications for educational grants have been adapted as follows. For the 2022 congress, educational grants may consist of a free registration and/or local travel if the delegates reside outside of Gauteng and if sufficient funding is available.
Applications from healthcare professionals for sponsorship to attend the SA Heart® Face to Face Congress 2022 are invited for the purpose of creating a database of interested parties and potential candidates, should third party educational grant funding become available. Completing and submitting this online application does not offer the applicant any guarantee of success or entitlement to sponsorship, even if the criteria listed below is met.
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.
