Annual Meeting and Exposition Travelships

How to Qualify for a Travelship to the 2017 AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition 

AAPS will distribute thousands of dollars in travelships this year to support the participation of student and post-doc authors who have submitted exciting abstracts. Here’s how to make sure you’re considered for a travelship. 

Be a student or a post-doc candidate.  

Submit a data-driven abstract that meets AAPS’ requirements. Learn more about the requirements here. AAPS screeners will evaluate your abstract using these 4 questions: 

    • Is the conclusion of the poster data-driven? 
    • Will viewers find this poster novel or exciting? 
    • Does this poster incrementally advance its field? 
    • Does the author’s selected strategy for evaluating the hypothesis suit the
            project?  

Check the box that indicates to which theme your abstract relates. Authors who have selected a theme when uploading their abstracts will be considered for travelships. Non-theme related abstracts will not be considered for travelships. The meeting’s themes are: 

    • Advanced Formulation Characterization Approaches 
    • Patient-Centered Innovations in Healthcare Technology 
    • Products for Pediatrics: It’s Not Child’s Play 
    • Improving Inter-organization Collaboration 
    • Cancer Moonshot: Emerging Modalities for Oncology  

The deadline for submitting your abstract is June 14 at 5:00 pm EDT – you may edit it, including adding a theme to your abstract – until that date. 

Learn more about the submission process.

If you believe it's ready, submit your poster abstract now! 

Posters will be displayed November 13-15, during the meeting in San Diego.
