TravCon Scholarship 2019

Are you a current or recent traveler who attended TravCon and is going back to school to further your education? If the answer is YES, you may be eligible to apply for a TravCon scholarship! TravCon is happy to award up to ten $1000.00 scholarships this year for students engaging in continuing education. 

How was the TravCon Scholarship Founded?

TravCon itself was founded on three main pillars: educational, professional, and social. When the conference began with its humble roots in 2008, it was barely scraping by financially. Now, over 12 years later, we are happy to be able to self-sustain the conference and think about more ways we can give back to the travel healthcare community. 

One way TravCon has decided to give back to the community is by offering scholarships to travelers who have attended TravCon and are in an educational program. 

Who is Eligible to Apply?

You can submit an application for a scholarship if you meet the following criteria:

  • Current enrollment (in the year of submission) in a bachelors, masters or doctorate in applicant’s healthcare field
  • Attendance of at least one TravCon in the three years prior to submission (can include the current year)
  • Completion of at least one travel assignment in the current year of submission
