VF-2015-Symposium-logoThe Vasculitis Foundation is pleased to welcome applications from patients with vasculitis interested in attending the 2015 International Vasculitis Symposium, June 19-21, in Jacksonville, Florida.  Parents of pediatric patients are also eligible to submit an application for a scholarship.

The scholarship program was established by a vasculitis patient who found great value in attending a symposium when she was newly diagnosed. The program is funded by donations from our members who want to provide the opportunity for others to benefit from attending the symposium.

Application deadline: Friday, April 10, 2015.  Scholarship recipients will be notified by Monday, April 27, 2015.  (Please note that scholarship recipients will be responsible for paying for their registration, travel and expenses (as applicable) and will be reimbursed after the conference.)

Please contact Joyce A. Kullman, VF Executive Director, if you have any questions about the program or would like to have the application emailed to you. 

There are two levels of scholarships: 

1)  Registration Scholarship:  One (1) 2015 symposium registration fee (value $199)

2)  Registration Scholarship plus Travel/Lodging:  One (1) 2015 symposium registration fee (value $199) plus up to $500 award to defray travel/lodging expenses.
(Attendees must live at least 120 miles from the Omni Hotel Jacksonville in Jacksonville, Florida to be eligible for the travel/lodging award.)

Scholarship recipients will be responsible for paying for their registration, travel and expenses (as applicable) and will be reimbursed after the symposium.
