Contribute to International Travel Grants

International Travel Grants promote the global exchange of science and information by providing an opportunity for clinical laboratory professionals from emerging areas around the world to attend the AACC Annual Meeting. Funded by AACC’s Access Program, these awards are made possible through generous donations from corporate and individual contributors and AACC Local Sections and Divisions, who fund these travel grants and mentor our international visitors.
