Resident Opportunities

Resident Travel Scholarships

In an effort to further resident education, the AAOA offers Resident Travel Scholarships for the Basic and Advanced Courses.

Designed to assist residents with travel and accommodation costs, travel scholarships are given to those residents who have applied for a scholarship and are an AAOA Member as of the application deadline.

Because the AAOA’s goal is to assist as many residents as possible while still awarding a considerable amount, we will not know exactly how much assistance will be awarded until after the registration deadline.  However, scholarships can range between $150 and $850, payable to the resident’s training program.

In order to apply for a Resident Travel Scholarship, you must currently be an AAOA Resident member in good standing or submit a completed application form with your scholarship application.  Resident presenters, including podium and poster presenters, are also eligible for the Annual Meeting Travel Scholarships.

Resident Travel Scholarship Application Requirements

To apply for a resident travel scholarship, e-mail the following components to residents@aaoallergy.org

  • AAOA Resident member or Resident member candidate with a complete application

  • A letter expressing your interest in the AAOA and its programs, as well as why you should be a scholarship recipient
  • A letter of recommendation from Program Director on letterhead
  • If applicable: A complete AAOA Membership application

Please make sure that you list all of your contact information with your application including your preferred mailing address, phone number, fax number (if available), and e-mail address.  We prefer to correspond by e-mail, so please include your primary email address.

You can also mail in your application to the address below.  Please note that scholarship applications are considered on a first-come basis, so e-mailing your application is advised.  All applications must be complete and postmarked by the due date in order to be reviewed and considered.
