Trainee Travel Award

How to Apply

To encourage C-L psychiatry fellows, residents, and medical students to join ACLP, attend the annual meeting, and eventually become new leaders of the Academy, a limited number of monetary awards are given to help offset the cost of attending the annual meeting. Our annual meeting is the best opportunity for trainees to get access to groundbreaking information in CLP today, as well as to get introduced to the Academy.

The ACLP Board of Directors determines the dollar amount and number of awards each year. Selections are made from applicants whose abstracts are accepted for the annual meeting as well as from individuals who do not have an accepted presentation or abstract. An applicant selected for the Webb Fellowship Award will not be considered for the Trainee Travel Award.
