The ISHLT Travelling Scholarship Award was established to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and techniques regarding heart and lung transplantation and the treatment of end stage heart and lung failure and to build relationships between individuals, institutions, and countries. The Scholarships may be used to learn new techniques in the clinic, operating room, or laboratory or just to experience first-hand how others deal with challenging problems. These awards are open to any member of the Society, in any country. They represent a unique opportunity for garnering fresh ideas and collaborative work across the globe.

The ISHLT will fund a minimum of ten scholarships per year. Each award will be in a amount of up to $6,000. ALL members of the Society are eligible to apply for a Scholarship. Applications for the next round close on August 1st.
