Student Scholarships

The IARC 2022 planning committee wants to ensure that the future Aphasia Researchers and Clinicians have access to the best and most current knowledge. With that goal in mind, we are offering a limited number of scholarships for students to attend IARC 2022, either in-person or virtually. Please note that the scholarship only covers registration fees; travel costs are the responsibility of the student.

The Application Period is Closed

 

This June, Aphasia Access is looking forward to hosting IARC 2022 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The health and safety of all attendees are of paramount concern to the conference committee and the Aphasia Access Board of Directors. As such, attendees will need to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 before arrival on-site in Philadelphia.

IARC 2022 will use the definition of fully vaccinated as provided by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Therefore, a booster, while encouraged, is not required.

Any additional mitigation protocols will be announced closer to the conference and conform to the City of Philadelphia and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania policies at the time of the event.

Recognizing that IARC 2022 is an international conference, the organizing committee is committed to assisting international travelers with navigating any COVID-19 regulations to the best of our ability. For example, should there be a testing requirement in place for international travel at the time of the conference, we intend to help connect travelers with access to reliable COVID-19 testing (at an additional expense).

Should you have any questions about IARC 2022’s Health and Safety Plans, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Aphasia Access’ Executive Director, Todd Von Deak, at tvondeak@AphasiaAccess.org.
