Travel Grants – Oley Annual Conference

Overview

As funds are available, Oley will offer multiple $600 scholarships to cover travel expenses for consumers, or a family member who cares for them, to attend the annual conference. Priority is given to applicants who will be attending the Oley annual conference for the first time. Approximately 30 days prior to the conference, if there are travel grants still available, applications from consumers and caregivers who have attended an annual conference before will be considered.

 

Applicants should not be receiving any other financial assistance for travel and/or lodging expenses related to attending the annual conference. Travel grants are limited to one per family/household. Travel must be completed and receipts received by Oley by August 15 before reimbursement can be made.

 

Application Process

Qualified conference registrants should write two paragraphs describing how they believe attending the conference will affect their life and submit them to harrinc@amc.edu or The Oley Foundation, Albany Medical Center MC-28, 99 Delaware Avenue, Delmar, NY 12054 – by the assigned deadline. Applications are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. The ideal candidate will also describe their plans to share information learned at the conference with consumers and/or clinicians back home. To be placed on a waiting list for the scholarship, applicants should submit their paragraphs as outlined above and indicate the application is for the waiting list.

 

Sponsors

Companies and individuals who are interested can donate to the Oley Annual Conference travel scholarship fund. We encourage increments of $600 to support a full grant. Sponsors will be recognized in the conference program. Oley staff reviews the applications and distributes the grants. Oley does not share the names of the recipients with sponsors. Oley cannot honor requests that grants be distributed to a specific individual. Oley will do its best to honor the sponsors’ preferences that their grant be given to a patient on a particular therapy or having a specific diagnosis, but Oley makes no guarantee.
