The ISHLT community extends to every corner of the globe and our members offer world leading expertise in every aspect of heart and lung transplantation, mechanical circulatory support, pulmonary hypertension and management of the failing heart or lungs. We encourage you to take advantage of being part of this amazing community by applying for an ISHLT International Traveling Scholarship.

Our Travel Scholarships are designed to provide individuals with the valuable opportunity to visit another centre around the world to enhance their personal development and learn from a centre of clinical or research excellence to either directly or indirectly benefit patient care.

A competitive application will describe a visit that provides access to knowledge and experience that would not normally be available to the applicant in their own centre. Applications which describe added value from the visit such as an associated audit or small research project that helps build collaborative links between centres will be recognised in the scoring. Up to six awards of $6000 are made in each application round and there are two rounds each year, so don't delay start thinking now about how securing an ISHLT Travel Scholarship can further your career and benefit your research or your patients.
