Travel Grant Deadline Approaching - U2FP's Annual Symposium

One of the primary goals at our Annual Symposium is to maximize the number of individuals in attendance with a spinal cord injury. There are few things more satisfying than seeing a room full of the leading SCI scientists engaging meaningfully with a room full of SCI individuals and their family members. To my knowledge, we are one of the only conferences that centers this sort of educational relationship building.

But we know the significant barriers that folks with an injury face when they travel. We know it first hand because the majority of our board and staff all face those same obstacles. And we know that the biggest barrier for most of the SCI community is money. 

That’s why we provide Travel Grants to individuals with paralysis in need of financial assistance (thanks to the generous support of the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation and Global Technology Services).

Apply Now

But time is running out - there are only two weeks left to apply (the deadline is Friday, September 1st). So get your application in today and make plans to join us on October 20-21, 2023 in Minneapolis Minnesota for a one-of-a-kind gathering of the SCI and Scientific communities.
