Application Period is September 1- September 30, 2016
The Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) announces that applications are being accepted September 1- September 30, 2016 for travel awards for residents and medical students in the field of Otolaryngology to attend the 2017 ARO MidWinter Meeting being held February 11-15, 2017 at the Marriott Waterfront hotel in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Awards of $500 each are being offered to defray travel and lodging costs associated with attendance at the ARO's annual meeting. The winners of the ARO Travel Awards will be selected by a committee appointed by the ARO President. Applicants need not be a member of ARO.
