These travel grants are available to those that submit an accepted abstract to the congress.  The grants will be fully actioned from the Sudan Congress Office (airfare and accommodation will be booked centrally and paid for so that recipients are not out of pocket).

The submissions will be reviewed by a committee consisting of eminent cardiovascular researchers in all the fields of cardiology. Grants will be awarded on a first come first served, if accepted, basis. The last date for submission for those requiring flights and visas is 28 August 2017.
