Innovation fuels progress in medical science, and we want to keep that flame burning. This scholarship offers seed funds to pilot projects that hold promise for breakthroughs in the understanding and treatment of glomerular diseases. If you have an idea that needs support to get off the ground, this scholarship could be your launching pad. Details about this program, including the application and selection process, will be announced in fall 2023.
Recognizing the value of the cross-pollination of ideas and practices across geographical boundaries, we are offering travel scholarships for trainees involved in GlomCon’s research initiatives. This scholarship supports travel costs associated with attending relevant conferences, symposiums, or research collaborations, promoting knowledge exchange and professional growth. The 2023 Travel Scholarship is provided to trainees (undergraduates, medical students, residents, and fellows) who are contributing to the Natural History of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) Study.
