51st Annual CBHL 2019 Meeting: Financial Support

Travel support

Financial support for travel and conference attendance

Support for CBHL members: Founders Fund

The purpose of the Founders' Fund Travel Fellowship Award is to provide limited financial support to assist qualified applicants in attending the annual meeting. 

This year there will be two scholarships awarded. Should more than two applicants qualify to receive the award, the recipients will be selected by blind lottery. A Fellowship winner may only reapply for the Award after ten years. Established in 1991, the Founders' Fund Travel Fellowship is a memorial to deceased CBHL members. 

The amount of the award is $500.00, and the meeting registration fee will be waived (not including pre- or post-meeting events).


To apply please print, fill out the attached form and return a signed copy by March 8th, 2019.  Unsuccessful applicants will be notified by March 11th and will still be eligible for the early bird rate for a limited time.
